Stewartville Kids Working to Get Billy Joel to Visit
Nick Johnson fell in love with music when he was 8 years-old and first heard Billy Joel.Joel's music inspired Johnson to learn to play piano and pursue a career in music. He now teaches choir at Stewartville where he shares his love of "The Piano Man" with his students.
The kids he teaches understand the impact that Billy Joel had on their teacher and have started a social media campaign to bring the famous entertainer to Stewartville. It started as a joke but now students are taking it seriously using the hashtag #GetBillyToStewie.
So what would happen if he actually showed up? Mr. Johnson told KTTC, "Best case scenario, Billy Joel walks through that door and I fall to my knees and cry or something like that." The teacher says he knows it's a long shot and would be thrilled to just receive a tweet or an email from Joel.
