London commuters traveling through St. Pancras International station found John in front of a piano in the middle of the station and watched him play on a brand new Yamaha piano that he donated to the station.

He wrote on Instagram, “Surprise!! I popped into St Pancras International to christen the Yamaha piano which I donated to the station. Now everyone can have a play.”

He also wrote on top of the piano, “Enjoy this piano. It’s a gift. Love, Elton John.”

He captioned a photo of the piano on Instagram: “My gift is my song and this piano’s for you,” a reference to lyrics from “Your Song” that say, “My gift is my song and this one’s for you.”

John did not sing and only played for about five minutes before leaving. He was also seen greeting a British transport police employee, and giving the man a kiss on the cheek and an autograph.

Elton will appear on James Corden’s “Late Late Show” on Super Bowl Sunday and sneak peeks show it will surely be a classic edition of  his “Carpool Karaoke.”
