Ryan is a homeless man who has been living on the streets of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, for 30 years.
He says he grew up in a foster home before he was adopted by a loving Christian family. He later married and had a daughter, but when she was 9 years old, both she and her mother died in a car crash. After that, Ryan chose to live on the streets, feeling he didn’t have anyone left in life.
According to Ryan, his love for Jesus and music keep him going. He is completely self-taught, having learned how to play by going to music stores.
Ryan may be homeless and penniless, but when he plays piano, he’s rich beyond measure.
Ryan plays his piano in Churchill Square, and the melody in the video is a piece he wrote.
