TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) — Marvin Goldstein moved to Tallahassee from Columbus, Ohio, 50 years ago to attend Florida State University. He majored in music. But, it was well before attending FSU that he realized his love for playing instruments.

Goldstein first started playing the accordion when he was 9-years-old. Three years later, he picked up the piano and has been playing ever since. Next week, Goldstein turns 70-years-old which means he's been playing the piano for more than 5 decades.

Goldstein said, "I know what people feel like when they are intent on listening. I know how much music can change mood, I know how much music can change peoples' lives for the better."

Goldstein has gone viral for his talent after playing the piano on Facebook Live back on Easter Sunday. With Monday being Memorial Day, he will do the same thing. "I hope that tomorrow when they tune in at 9 p.m. Eastern, May 25th, Memorial day, that they'll take away a feeling of peace, of hopefulness, of thankfulness. And basically, they'll extend their love beyond themselves."

To watch Goldstein play patriotic songs for Memorial Day, just head to his Facebook page at 9 p.m. EST.
