Never judge a book by it’s cover. That is the case with Donald (Boone) Gould, a 51-year-old homeless former U.S. Marine.
He plays the piano so beautifully that it touches the heart of the world. The youtube video capturing him playing a beautiful rendition of “Come Sail Away” by Styx T have 1,000,000 hits in 24 hours and now has more than 8,000,000 hits.
Dylan Henry who uploaded the video has since started a crowdfunding activity to get Donald off the streets.
Even more miraculous is the fact that this sudden fame has reconnected him with the child he was separated from about 15 years ago. Drug abuse problems caused Gould to lose custody of his son Donny when he was only 3 years old. Gould hasn’t seen Donny since.
