At the end of the video, the crowd erupted in big applause. People were left speechless and could hardly believe the quality and passion of the music.

It’s not every day you go to a train station and hear such amazing talent!

In the clip, a woman who appears to be Lucy’s mom explains: “She likes the applause, but she doesn’t like the sound of the applause. So her fingers go in her ears for sensory reasons.”

You can watch the incredible performance for yourself in the video below:
