Teen Sits Down At Public Piano And Delivers Perfect “Interstellar” Cover From Memory.

Ella plays Interstellar on piano

We’re all blessed with a talent of one kind or another, but some gifts make everyone sit up and take notice!

Sir Elton John once showed up at London’s St. Pancras station to put on a short, free concert. When he finished, he left behind his signed black Yamaha piano for all to enjoy. As a street musician who has made a name for himself performing at public pianos, Andrei Piano often comes to the station to play the famous instrument, but one day, he stepped aside to let a young woman named Ella play.

Ella is just 17 years old, but she’s already a talented artist who is entirely self-taught. She started playing three years ago and has already surpassed many players with her natural abilities. As Andrei watched, Ella sat down at the famous Yamaha and began to play a magical cover of Hans Zimmer’s “Interstellar” theme. Without so much as a sheet of music in front of her, Ella’s fingers flew over the keys to produce a gorgeous, ethereal melody that quickly drew a crowd of admirers.

Talk about natural talent! Something tells us Sir Elton John would be very pleased to see this video. Watch Ella’s version of “Interstellar” below, and be sure to share this story.
