Lucy, 13, from West Yorkshire, was awarded performance of the night during the final of ‘The Piano’ – a series which was on the hunt to discover some of Britain’s most talented pianists.
The show, hosted by Claudia Winkleman, involves members of the public performing at train stations across the UK while the judges watch in a secret room.
During her first appearance on the show, a clip of Lucy’s performance was posted on Twitter by the Channel 4 official account, leaving viewers incredibly moved.
Her mesmerising performance stuns the crowd at the station who watch on in awe, with people online saying they were ‘tearful’ after watching the clip.
Singer-songwriter Mika and Chinese pianist Lang Lang who were the judges on the show announced Lucy as the winner crowned Lucy as the winner of the TV piano competition after she left viewers in tears after performing Chopin at a train station last month.
‘It was about just highlighting if something extraordinary was to happen – something that no one would forget, no one on this stage but also no one in the audience.
‘And that happened,’ singer Mika said.
Lucy like the other three of the competition’s grand finalists were reportedly discovered while playing on public pianos in some of the UK’s busiest train stations.
Other grand finalists included 25-year-old Jay from the Isle of Wight, 27-year-old Sean from Edinburgh, and 26-year-old Danny from Manchester
Lucy, who is also autistic and has learning disabilities, showcased her incredible talent at Leeds train station, wowing people passing by.
She’s been working with her music teacher Daniel since she was just three-years-old and he has supported her throughout the competition.
The teenager developed her skills through a musical charity called The Amber Trust.
Lucy’s mother Candice said: ‘I always knew she would be on a big stage one night. I said to the producers, “You have seen in my daughter what I have seen for years.”
‘Lucy has a chromosome 16 duplication which causes autism traits, developmental delay and intellectual disability. She started playing on the keyboard when she was two and moved to piano at three,’ Candice said.
‘I am beyond proud of my little girl, beyond proud.’ Lucy’s mother Candice.
