Nothing can compare to the magic of music. A pianist, who goes by Emilio Piano on social media, knows this to be true. His account is full of performances he’s put on both by himself and with others. A particularly popular video of his includes a disabled teen who is a master at the cello.
At the start of the video, we see that Emilio is playing the piano in an airport. Soon after he finishes a song, a girl in a wheelchair approaches. Confidently, she asks the pianist if he wants to play something together.
With the help of Emilio’s cello teacher, the three of them prepare for an impromptu performance that is sure to stun everyone. In fact, as soon as they start playing, the airport falls remarkably silent, all eyes on them.

The 17-year-old, whose name is Valentina, has a rare muscle disease. She finds so much hope and joy in music, later telling Emilio that “music is my medicine.”
As usual, this sort of impromptu performance is reminding folks of the power of music, along with the beauty that happens when we collaborate with others.
“I truly think music is the closest thing we have to magic,” one person says in the comment section of Emilio’s video. “It can move without touching.”
Watch this talented, disabled cello player deliver an unforgettable performance with a pianist in the video below.
