Donald Gould, a homeless man living in Sarasota, Florida, was recorded playing a beautiful piano rendition of the song “Come Sail Away” by Styx in a video by Dylan Henry. Gould is a college-educated musician who plays a variety of instruments, and says he also played the clarinet in the Marine Corps. Henry and his colleagues interviewed Gould after the original video started going viral.
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up on Gould’s behalf to help him pay for a home and other essentials, and Henry has also launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund a web series titled Humanizing Homelessness to highlight other homeless individuals around the country.
For comparison, here is the original version of “Come Sail Away.”
