Many people who enjoy public pianos have a small business tickling ivory, but Shawn Foley is absolutely not one of them.
In an entertaining series of events with the online world buzzing, health care worker Danielle Herby, who works at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers, took a break at 3:33 a.m. at HealthPark Medical Center when he hears an enticing sound and needs to keep track of it.
Because of performing at that quiet time in the beautiful lobby, Herby shared the magical moment with TikTok – and the video went viral instantly.
“I posted more of them, remember to thank your local health care workers,” dnherby posted on TikTok on Tuesday.
“I went out to rest,” the text in the video reads. “I can hear the music coming from the atrium.
“I look down and I see my fellow health care worker playing it to his 30 at 3:33 am.
“I was BLESSED to have witnessed it and was able to rest at the same time he did. Thank you for this. I need it to improve my shift.”
As of Wednesday morning, the video had been viewed more than 5 million times. Ang players soon identified as Foley, whose long hair apparently led Herby to believe it was a woman at the piano.
Foley was surprised to go to social media and see his video circulating.

“So I went down to the lobby last night to play a little bit and despair … not knowing I was recorded lolll, going through the stories on Instagram later that night and I found myself,” Foley, an emergency department technician at Golisano Children’s Hospital, posted on Facebook on Tuesday afternoon.
He also confirmed to comments in his videos the song that went viral was Michael Bublé’s “Feeling Good” and he would play it in the main lobby of HealthPark in Fort Myers.
“My son at work on his break … we saw it floating online!” his mother, Jillian Foley Mullin, posted “He went viral and not for #parkour … Maybe God wants him to use some of his more talents to shine.”
The reaction from the general public has been one of fear and emotion, with many freely admitting performance they cried.
Herby has promised to post lots of videos of night-concerts, and if you want to see more of this talented musician, you can check out his TikTok.
