Monday May 3rd I stopped into the new Trinity Cafe 2 on Busch Blvd in Tampa for the first time.
As soon as I walked in I heard the most magnificent Piano music playing and looked over to see who was playing.
There was a young man working the keys who had a little rough appearance, but you would never know it by his Piano skills.
I walked directly over next to the Piano and watched him play knowing that I had to learn a bit of his story and share his playing with the world.
His name is Charlie.
Charlie prefers to call his current situation his " journey " . I lives streamed a song onto the Homeless Lives Matter Facebook page, however the quality was not that good.
I knew that I had to return another time in hope to shoot an HD video of Charlie playing to share a much better quality video with the world in hope that we could assist Charlie on to a much better journey than he is currently on.
I returned on Monday May 9th 2016 and here is one of the videos that I shot
Watch the whole video to hear a little about Charlie's journey and also hear him play " Fire & Rain " .
Please LIKE , COMMENT AND SHARE this video if you enjoyed hearing Charlie play and would like to see more videos of his music or possibly hire Charlie to play gigs or even teach you how to play.
Charlie has a dream to own his own Piano school and teach as well as play for a living.
