Ryan says that he has been living on the streets for 30 years, and no one really gave him lessons on playing the instrument. But, he knew he wanted to learn it so he taught himself over the years until he can play.

Much to everyone’s surprise, this man is not only able to play the piano but he also created his own song. He composed it and played the song in the video uploaded by Roslyn on her channel.

Everyone is simply in awe of this talented man. It is definitely interesting to find out that being out on the streets is not a reason for a person who is enamored with music to just give up on their dreams.

The homeless man has touched millions of hearts online.

Homeless or not, talent is not something that is found in everyone. Certain people acquire talent through hard work, which is the case for Ryan, who wanted to play and found a way to do it, despite his circumstances.

After the video went viral, Ryan’s popularity surged, and he was given opportunities to turn his life around.

However, the man still preferred to live on the streets and even had a history of struggling with addiction.

Ryan passed away four years after his famous video was taken, but his will to grow as a musician is still an inspiration.

It only proves that your situation does not dictate who you can be.
