UPDATE: Donald Gould is unrecognizable now… Months after entering into a rehab program, he was offered a record contract. He looks healthy and playing music is now his career!
Donald Gould knows how to play the piano, in fact he was just a few credits shy in college from getting a degree in music theory.
But, few people knew that when he sat down at a public piano in Sarasota, Florida and started playing “Come Sail Away” by Styx almost perfectly.
You see, Gould’s life had pretty much fallen apart after his wife’s death and he ended up homeless and living on the street.
People were so moved by his story after his story was shown on “Inside Edition” that he was able to get cleaned up. He’s received over $50,000 in donations and, most importantly, he’s been able to reunite with a son that he hadn’t seen since the boy was three-years-old.
I love happy endings!
