You don’t know what’s under the cover, and that’s certainly true for this Marine.
This Marine would have likely remained in obscurity had it not been for a viral video.
As reported in Sun Gazing,
Homeless for the past seven years, fifty one year old former Marine Donald Gould unexpectedly had his life turned upside down when someone shot a video of him doing what he did every day: making magic for passerbys on a public piano. The video immediately went viral, taking the internet by storm. He was simply expressing himself without expecting anything in return, and karma finally rewarded him.
As a direct result of his sudden rise to internet stardom, a group of people who saw Gould’s story on youtube decided to give him a makeover of his appearance, and ultimately, his life. First, it’s off to the store to get a new wardrobe. Next, they take him to a barber shop to get a haircut and a fresh shave, his first in eighteen months. But that’s not all, they then give him something that will last much longer than a new shirt or a haircut.
