Singer Ceili O'Connor Stops To Duet With Elderly Man Playing Piano

CATS singer Ceili O'Connor performs the sweetest duet with an elderly man at a public piano. Ceili is a talented vocalist most famously known for her portrayal of Jennyanydots on the International tour of CATS.

Recently, she was traveling to Brussels for another performance of the popular musical when fellow actor Matthew Rowland spotted something special. There was an elderly man playing ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ on a public piano.

Matthew said on Twitter, "I saw this guy playing and called Ceili O'Connor as I knew he needed a singing partner.” Then, he started recording the incredible moment as Ceili belted out the iconic lyrics while the man continued to play.

“Someday, I wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me”

Once the performance was posted online, it immediately garnered all kinds of attention. Nearly a million people have watched this sweet exchange and no one is more surprised by the praise then Ceili herself.

She posted on Twitter, “Can’t believe how many people have seen the video of Dennis & I still. The most heart warming thing for me is seeing how it’s touched peoples hearts in some way or other. The power of music.”

Music is truly the universal language and it’s amazing to watch two strangers create an instant bond in such a beautiful way. This is definitely one duet that you’ll want to hear again and again.
