ORLANDO, Fla. (SBG) — A Facebook video of a man singing in a Disney World hotel is shocking lots of social media users.

Justin Gigliello said his family was visiting for lunch. He told his daughter how his own parents would take him to the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa to listen to the pianist in the lobby, so she asked if they could go.

"The pianist was playing, and we danced to a couple of songs and then when a song ended, she went up to the pianist and said I play and sing," Gigliello said. "The pianist asked what song I like, and she said "Ave Maria" and then it just happened!"

The original video has nearly 600,000 views on Facebook after it was posted a week ago.

"The reaction has been incredible," Gigliello said. "I have gotten so much love and support."

Gigliello is a trained vocalist. He said he has been singing since he was 15 years old and has a degree in voice performance from the Boston Conservatory. He's also a huge Disney fan.
