Homeless Street Musician Goes Viral On YouTube, Gets A Record Deal, & Turns His Life Around
In the beginning, Daniel was a homeless alcoholic street musician. He came into the Opie & Anthony studios for their annual Homeless Shopping Spree. In passing, he said that he was a musician. The studio staff, being curious and having no idea what to expect, found him a guitar. Reportedly, he performed an original song that stunned the entire staff. Then they asked him to play a cover.
The rest is history. He played “Creep” and became a YouTube phenomenon.
I recall seeing this video last year and being rather impressed. Go to the Hypebot link above to read the rest of the story, and see a sneak peek from Daniel Mustard’s debut EP. I defy you not to get a bit teary eyed.
