The moving performance was caught on camera and uploaded to Facebook where it went viral with more than 2.3 million views and over 93,000 shares. Gould’s newfound viral fame has certainly come as a shock to the 51-year-old. “I was thinking I could just put my hat on the piano and make a couple dollars and get tips,” Gould said. “I didn’t expect it to jump out to this.” The 51-year-old, who’s affectionately known as “Boone” to the community, turns out to be a regular on the keys and runs through five songs a day for the public from Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” to Bach’s “Toccata.” Gould’s piano-playing has delighted people in Sarasota and now the Internet. But there’s a heartbreaking story behind the musician. He first lost his job and then lost his wife and son in 1998. He ended up in Sarasota and began playing music with Paul Lonardo, another musician. Now, things may be looking up for Gould. Someone who saw the video reached out to local restaurant Surf Shack, which offered to allow the 51-year-old try out for a position as a possible actor for their bar. Others have also wowed us with their music al performances. A homeless man named Ryan shocked people last year with a beautiful performance on an outdoor public piano in Canada. Similarly, David Allen, another homeless man, shocked people with some wonderful piano playing on a thrift store piano, even moving one listener to tears. “He started to play, and I choked on my coffee and it started coming out of my nose,” listener James Maynard said. “I had tears coming to my eyes when I saw his fingers go down one end of the piano to the other.” 21. What can we know about Donald Gould? A. He uploaded his performance to Facebook. B. He teamed up with David Allen to give performances. C. His performance enjoyed wide popularity on the Internet. D. Donald Gould will live a happy life with his wife and son. 22. Donald Gould performed on the public piano in order to _______. A. gain fame and fortune B. earn some extra money C. look back on the old good days
