“Goodness Gracious!” Man Wows Strangers With His Toe-Tapping Piano Performance.

The world is filled with talented entertainers. Simply turn on the television any given night and you’re bound to find some version of a singing competition or music awards celebration. Somehow, new artists flood the airwaves each year to amaze us with their beautiful voices. But when was the last time you were awestruck by the random performance of an unknown musician?

A recent video uploaded on Reddit manages to do just that! Throughout the minute-long video, an elderly man pays homage to the late Jerry Lee Lewis with a spirited rendition of the classic rockabilly song, “Great Balls of Fire”. People begin to sing along as the stranger belts out the familiar lyrics and commands the piano with fearless gusto, leaving the crowd in awe of his musical abilities.

And okay, we can’t resist saying it: “Goodness Gracious!” Where has this man been hiding his whole life?

While he may not have a famous name or multi-million-dollar recording contract, we are quite certain this gentleman is every bit as talented as many successful musicians. In fact, his brief time in the limelight has already sparked a number of positive online comments. Some folks are even calling him “Goose” in reference to the “Top Gun” character of the same name. Spoiler alert: Goose also gives a knockout performance of “Great Balls of Fire” in the original “Top Gun” movie (just in case 1986 isn’t on your radar).

Now that the video has gone viral, more and more people are being exposed to this incredible talent. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself!
