If you play music or act, you most likely have one or more idols that you look up to. Dolly Parton sang a duet with a boy with Down syndrome because he was such a fan and he will remember that day forever.
Micheal Pollack, a Vanderbilt University freshman, is a talented piano player and he aspires to be Billy Joel. Billy Joel has and continues so inspire so many people to play the piano and/or sing and at a recent Q&A session at Pollack’s school, the young musician asked if he could play one of Billy Joel’s biggest hits, “New York State of Mind” with him. Billy Joel said yes and I’m sure he was happy that he did, it was an incredible impromptu performance!
Watch Billy Joel sing “New York State of Mind” with one his fans playing on piano…
