John Legend Surprise Performance at St. Pancras International
Yamaha Artist and 10-time Grammy winner John Legend surprised London commuters yesterday, March 29th, when he stopped off at St Pancras International to perform a few songs, including “Ordinary People” and “All of Me”, on the Yamaha B3 piano which was donated to the station by Yamaha Artist Sir Elton John last year. Elton signed this piano, writing “Enjoy this piano! It’s a gift. Love, Elton John.”
John was arriving into St Pancras on the Eurostar and tweeted:
“Arriving at London @StPancrasInt on @EurostarUK. Do they still have that piano there?”
Pianos have been a permanent fixture in St Pancras since 2009 and some have even been donated by commuters who want to fill the station with music. They’re all carefully looked after by station staff and are played every day by visitors of all ages.
