Back in February, a little boy has surprised a huge crowd in Liverpool as he sat on an empty public piano and gave it a try. It was the usual busy day for everyone where people were just going about their errands. What they didn’t know is that this unassuming child was about to play them some serious music that’d leave them in awe. Soon enough, he started playing a song that reverberated around the mall. People immediately stopped in their tracks and watched the enthralling performance.
The child’s name is Harrison Crane, and boy, was he talented with these keys! He kicked off the medley with a note-perfect rendition of “Children” by Robert Miles. Then, he seamlessly slid into the “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” by Eiffel 65 for 30 seconds before switching to the tune of “Sandstorm” by DJ Darude. At this point, the audience has swelled in size! He then shifted into “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes and strongly finished his piece as he hammered the final notes of Children. There started this talented little man’s musical quest.
In the video below, you can see him play Ludovico Einaudi’s cover version of Nuvole Bianche. It was a lovely day at the Brodericks Coffee Shop in Manchester Airport’s terminal two as he entertained the customers. The amazing performance was recorded on camera and has then gone viral with a total view of more than 15 million! Harrison has now 92.2K subscribers on his YouTube channel and rightfully so. He attracted so much attention that he was even featured on the Ministry of Sound Club’s Instagram account and Facebook pages.

But his melodic journey didn’t stop there. This gifted musical genius was eventually invited to perform live on TV in Good Morning Britain. There, he promised millions of people that he’ll post videos of his new songs played on public pianos whenever given a chance. And for those who enjoyed his performances and would like to give him a tip, he also has a PayPal link set up for that. His Instagram account is even growing with more than 8,000 fans and counting. This well-rounded child uses this platform to share both his piano videos and soccer photos. What a champ!
