'Homeless piano man' continues recovery, recording album

A professional recording studio is a far cry from the Sarasota city streets where Donald Gould was playing a year ago. But then again, Donald Gould is a far cry from the man he was a year ago.

"A year ago, I figured I'd die out there living on the street," he said.

His talent for playing piano - and a viral video - would take Donald from homeless to artist.

"Quality of living is better. I have my own place. even my own cat. Groucho," he said.

"He's made great strides there's always bumps in the road, and obstacles he's overcome, but he's worked hard on his recovery," said his manager and life coach Jacqueline Bevan.

His take on redemption echoes in his music.

"He's really playing from some place personal and I think when he's behind the piano that's where it comes out," said Bevan.

And that's what he wants you to hear when you listen to his first album, set for release this fall.

"I think that the most important thing is to be genuine. Donald is certainly very genuine. I think that's translated thru his music for sure," said music producer Michael Cowen.

"I say, 'wow! Is this really happening?' It gives me a feeling of gratitude and pride," Gould said.

It's the next step in Donald's evolution, from living on the streets, to becoming famous overnight, even playing in an NFL stadium.

"I don't know what direction I'm headed but I'm sure its going to be in a positive direction," Gould said.
