Donald Gould is a 51-year-old ex-marine who turned to drugs after he lost his wife in 1998 and soon after became estranged from his son.

He has been homeless for the past six years.

After someone recently uploaded a video of his talent, a crowdfunding page was set up to raise money for Donald to get a car and gain some musical qualifications so he can teach other people to play.

Over $11,000 has already been raised from donations from over 500 people, with the hope of raising $50,000 for the homeless man.
