An antique store in Massachusetts has given a mystery man a piano after he dazzled with an impromptu performance of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin.'”

On Saturday, 23-year-old John Thomas Archer asked employees at ReMARKable Cleanouts in Norwood permission to play a piano that was out on display.

One worker showed the store’s owner, Mark Waters, a recorded video of Archer as he wowed a small audience.

“I saw the clip and said, ‘Wow, that’s fantastic,'” Waters told “Good Morning America.” “He just lit up and drew a crowd.”

Waters, who opened ReMARKable Cleanouts a decade ago, said he was able to track down Archer and offer him a Steinway model piano simply to make his day.

“He went into tears and it brought tears to my eyes,” Waters said. “It was one of those feel good moments.”

“I just wish there was more stories like this with everyone opening their hearts,” he added. “I’d like to donate something every day if it brought people into a good mood.”

Archer is a graphic design student at Northeastern University and a self-taught musician, according to Waters.

Archer could not immediately be reached for comment.
