John Legend surprised commuters on Wednesday with an impromptu mini-concert at the St Pancras International railway station in London. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter teased the gig on Twitter beforehand, writing, “Arriving at London @StPancrasInt on @EurostarUK. Do they still have that piano there?” Not surprisingly, he arrived to a crowd of excited fans and a cadre of photographers.
Legend performed a three-song set — which included a medley of his hits “Ordinary People,” “All of Me,” and “Surefire” — on a public piano for the stunned crowd.
The reaction to the impromptu performance quickly circulated on social media:
