This week we learned, courtesy of the Lansing State Journal, that the piano performance of a Lansing teenager has gone viral. It's easy to see why this simple footage of a self-taught 18 year-old named Monntel West was spread all over Facebook this past weekend. Let's hope that we hear more from him in the future!

This is why they put a piano in the #lansingmall. Self taught!! #yiruma. Wow. Gave me goosebumps!!
