John Legend Surprises Fans With Spontaneous Gig At London St. Pancras
John Legend brightened up Brits on their way to work this morning by making a surprise appearance at London St. Pancras for an unforgettable performance.
Stopping off at one of the infamous street pianos which sit in the middle of the train station, Legend gave passersby a commute to remember as he put on an exclusive show.
He was travelling to London via the EuroStar when he decided he would give his UK fans a treat.
Tweeting before he got off the train, the 38-year old singer said,

Moments later, the Grammy award winner sang his heart out in front of a very surprised crowd.
He gave enthused onlookers heartfelt renditions of his hits ‘All Of Me’, ‘Ordinary People’ and ‘Surefire’.
Sticking around for just ten minutes, the US musician then left the station and got into the vehicle that was waiting for him on arrival.
The piano that Legend played during his spontaneous gig was donated by fellow musician, Sir Elton John.
The iconic singer donated his Yahama piano as a gift in 2016 after his stunning live medley at St. Pancras, signing it with, ‘Enjoy this piano! It’s a gift. Love Elton John x’.
The La La Land gave his fans a treat this morning all in aid of National Piano Day.
This comes just weeks after $31,000 worth of John’s belongings were stolen from his bag at JFK airport.
The items included a $30k Cartier Panther diamond encrusted cuff links and a expensive pair of glasses.
He tweeted of the incident,
The bag was taken because it was left unattended. The airport police caught the person who took it (on video) and retrieved my bag. Thanks to the airport police/security. One could say it’s been “handled”.
Legend is currently in the city to promote his European tour which kicks of in September.
