Now in 2018, at the age of 84 she’s still as humble as she’s ever been and more than capable of creating music magic on a piano. Recently she was told there was a piano in a “David Jones” department store and it didn’t take long for her music to make impact on the shoppers and her YouTube audience alike. This lady is an inspiration.
Natalie walks into ‘David Jones’ Melbourne after being told there is a piano inside for the festive season.
A pianist is playing and he recognises Natalie from many years ago when she used to just walk in from the street and start playing attracting huge crowds and media interest.He offers to stand aside for a bit and hear her play.The two pieces Natalie plays here are both ‘spontaneous’, as in she is composing as she plays.
