We wanted to take a moment on our blog to note the terror attacks in Paris, and express our concern, love, and support for a country in turmoil right now, France.

It’s hard to know what to say in situations like this… We think pianist Davide Martello was successful in comforting those in Paris the day after the attacks.

He was watching the France vs. Germany soccer game in a German pub when the bombing began at the Stade de France. Soon after, he was embarking on a 400-mile trip to Paris with his grand piano in tow.

Martello made it to Paris and played John Lennon’s “Imagine” outside of Paris’ Bataclan theatre on Saturday morning (Nov. 14).

“I wanted to be there to try and comfort, and offer a sign of hope,…I can’t bring people back but I can inspire them with music and when people are inspired they can do anything. That’s why I played ‘Imagine.’”

Martello also performs under the name @klavierdunst.

We thank you!
