John Legend Takes Over Public Piano For Impromptu Gig At London Train Station

John Legend stunned fans by holding an impromptu gig at a London train station on Wednesday morning.

The singer-songwriter commandeered one of the public pianos at St. Pancras International station shortly after stepping off the Eurostar train from Paris, France.

Crowds of passersby stopped to snap photographs and hear the soul star perform a bunch of his hits, including the 2004 smash “Ordinary People.”

For some, however, his appearance wasn’t entirely unexpected.

Legend tipped off fans about a possible performance via Twitter just minutes before:

The musician played for around 15 minutes before stepping away and walking to a waiting car with who appeared to be a security guard.

Twitter users have since been sharing photographs and video of his appearance online:
