Boy Plays ‘America The Beautiful’ To Honor His Brother Overseas, Only To Turn And See His Face

In this memorable clip, a young boy sits down at the piano to play a very special song. Meanwhile, his family congregates around him, proudly watching and filming on their phones.

The boy performs “America the Beautiful,” a song that holds a particularly significant meaning for the family; his older brother is a Marine who was deployed at the time of this living room recital.

At least… that’s what he thought.

He missed his big brother desperately and undoubtedly thought of him with the strike of each piano key. And just as he got to the line, “And crown thy good with brotherhood … from sea to shining sea,” a very unexpected guest sneaks into the room. The guest then quietly sits down on the piano bench and waits for the reaction.

Watch his face when he looks over his right shoulder and realizes who is suddenly sitting beside him. I think you can figure out who the mystery man is.

What a priceless moment captured on video.
