Stranger Grabs Mic From A Street Performer And Starts To Sing - People Gathered When They Recognized His Voice

When you pass by street performers, do you stop, listen?

We should all follow our dreams to have a fulfilled and meaningful life. Still, every journey is often a lot harder than people give credit for it. There’s never a guarantee that your passion is going to be a massive financial success or recognition. However, there’s also the excitement at the possibility of being discovered to start a career.

That’s what makes Piccadilly Circus in London such an exciting place.

Although the area has long been known as a tourist destination, it is also home to many street musicians. Though many of these street performers are trying to make a name for themselves, the area is also home to many celebrity sightings. But amazingly, one day those two worlds collided.

Piccadilly Circus in London.

It started as a regular street corner performance for a native singer-songwriter, Henry Facey. He was in the middle of performing Rod Stewart’s “Handbags and Gladrags” when something incredible happened.

Rather than let the opportunity go to waste, Stewart asked Facey if he could join in.

It was a remarkable performance for anyone who was walking through the square that day. As it turns out, Stewart started his own musical career as a “busker” or a street performer where he would play guitar. Of course, Stewart later went on to perform with the Jeff Beck Group, the Faces and then subsequently onto his successful solo career though.

That day, however, Stewart took things back to his roots—and the crowd was very grateful for it.

After the song ended, Stewart gave some parting words to the applauding crowd.

An incredible performance to remember.

Above all, it’s moments like these that remind us the magic of music and art. Although it can be difficult to get established, there are always magical moments like these that make the entire journey worth it. In addition to giving Facey’s performance a boost, Stewart gave onlookers a special memory to take with them while paying homage to his roots. And most importantly, dreams do come true!

A special salute to Rod Stewart and Henry Facey for the once-in-a-lifetime performance!

“Music can change the world because it can change people.”
