John Legend gives surprise performance at St Pancras International Station

Earlier today, John Legend surprised lucky rail passengers by putting on an impromptu performance at St Pancras International Station.

The ‘All of Me’ singer caused a stir on social media before arriving, asking if there was still a piano at the station.

Having arrived in London to promote his European tour, he then made his way to the Sir Elton John Piano to serenade unsuspecting passers-by. Live streamed from Live Nation UK’s Facebook page, the singer performed smash hits ‘Ordinary People’, ‘All Of Me’, and new single ‘Surefire’.

Although he was escorted away immediately afterwards, many a person’s day was brightened by getting to hear John’s dulcet tones in the flesh.
