Watch: Homeless pianist Donald Gould proves that there’s potential in anyone




The next time you pass a homeless person selling poems in Piccadilly Gardens consider this.

What if that person with little more than a pen was the next Harper Lee? Could the busker with a beard and a guitar become a big seller? 

How many people don’t know they have a talent that could take them to better places?

I was struck by this unfolding story in America, which transformed homeless Donald Gould into a national celebrity.

He was discovered playing a piano in the street and ended up with an opportunity to rebuild his life. Hopefully he’s still on the up and up.
