#WeSeeYou: Here’s Why This 18-Year-Old Self-Taught Pianist Went Viral
Monntel West, a senior at Everette High School, is a self-taught pianist who doesn’t own a piano. So, when he saw an upright piano sitting in the east end of Lansing Mall, he took the opportunity to play a cover of “River Flows In You,” a classical tune originally performed by Korean artist Yurima. At the time, West was waiting for a friend and had no intention of giving a performance. He simply wanted to kill time. But, he quickly drew a crowd.
