The amazing comeback story of a once homeless street performer, which touched people around the world, has an exciting new chapter. Donald Gould went from being homeless to an overnight sensation when he was discovered playing a street piano in downtown Sarasota. Fast forward two years, and ABC7 has learned that he is doing well. In fact, he has found love, is recording new music and keeping busy by making the rounds on German TV.

Donald ended up in Germany after stories of his remarkable turnaround and his music, spread across the globe. A woman in Germany, Sabine Pérez, tells us she was compelled to contact Donald when his music started having a direct and positive impact on her life.

At the end it said he hasn’t forgotten where it all started. I’m pretty sure it all started when he was much younger with lessons and practice. I’m sure a lot of time went into learning to play the piano.

I liked him in the long hair and beard better, don’t get me wrong I’m ecstatic he has turned his life around but he had a cool Venice Beach Tom Hanks Castaway vibe going and after he looked like Bill Gates ha ha. Good for him, all the best.

Just proves you can't judge a book by its cover and you can't deny God's grace if music is the food of love play on.

My dad used to do this- if there was a piano he would play it! I miss him dearly and the sound of a piano still helps me sleep as he played every night
