Woman posts video of homeless pianist playing original song, and look where he is now

When it comes to the Internet, there are obviously pros and cons. But one of the best things about it is that it provides a platform where talent can surface and be known by people from all over the world. It has the potential to change lives.
This is exactly what happened in the case of the talented pianist in the video below. Ryan Arcand wasn’t doing so well when he crossed paths with a woman whose gesture would end up changing his life forever.
Arcand was homeless and would often perform on a public piano on the streets of Alberta, Canada hoping to raise some money for food. Locals knew about the man’s immense talent for singing the piano, but there weren’t much they could do, and Arcand was struggling more and more.
That all changed when a woman named Roslyn Pollard who saw Arcand perform on the street decided to take a video of him and upload it online for the entire world to see.
From then on, everything started to move fast. The clip went viral online and gained the attention of major news outlets who were eager to tell the man’s story. You see, Arcand is not only a pianist but also a composer.
He writes his own music, and he does it brilliantly. After his story was made public, his entire life changed. After everything that has happened, the man is still struggling to adapt to his new reality but is grateful for everything he was offered.
This is his story:
