It’s so nice to think that someone in some corner of the world is doing something heartwarming and inspiring. The story of a disabled cellist who moved an entire airport full of people with her performance is a paradigm of this. In a video posted on Reddit by u/RevolutionaryTell668, we see a girl in a wheelchair come up to a pianist getting ready to perform at the airport and ask him if he would like to play something together. He agrees and asks her what instrument she likes to play. She replies cello. They get ready to perform as the pianist, the cellist and her teacher take their positions on the podium to play.

The girl was super excited and as they started playing, the entire airport became silent. People gathered around and started recording as the cellist played side-by-side with her teacher. The moment was truly moving and the music was absolutely beautiful. People got emotional while listening to the music and watching the performance. Valentina, the cellist, is only 17 years old and has a rare muscle disease. Even the pianist had goosebumps listening to her play. She later told him, “Music is my medicine.” The lucky people at the airport got to feel the power of the girl’s music. By the end of the video, the girl’s cello teacher looked really happy as well. It was a truly inspiring moment.

u/Karen_Morrison commented, “This video is truly inspiring! The talent and determination of this disabled cellist shine through in their moving performance. It's a powerful reminder that music has the ability to transcend physical limitations and touch the hearts of people around the world.” u/Irisgrower2 wrote praising the cello teacher, “My hat goes off to the aid who not only is assisting the young lady through an airport but is also toting two cellos along with them.” u/ShroomyGorilla47 wrote, “Amazing. Music and vibrations have a crazy impact on humans and living things in general. Even on the brain and how it thinks or feels. Which can impact your physical health.” u/MadvilleWonderland agreed to their comment and shared a story on music, “I agree—your comment immediately made me think of the video of a woman playing an instrument outside that attracted a deer to get closer and closer to the musician while she played. That deer was mesmerized by the music, and its curiosity overcame its caution.” Truly, the power of both music and the girl’s dedication is incredible.
