The Boy and The Piano

This Christmas advertisement from John Lewis & Partners featuring Sir Elton John is certain to touch your heart.

Is there anything more precious than a boy, his piano, and a gift from his Mum?

IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME THAT THE ADVERT WAS CLOSE TO MY ACTUAL MEMORIES AND EXPERIENCE SO IT HAD THAT EMOTIONAL IMPACT. AND YES, THE PIANO HAS ALWAYS BEEN A BIG PART OF MY LIFE. MY EARLIEST MEMORIES ALWAYS REVOLVE AROUND MUSIC AND THE PIANO WAS ALWAYS AT THE CENTRE OF FAMILY LIFE WHEN I WAS GROWING UP.”- Sir Elton John CBE
