Gilles Parenteau showcased his one-man symphony technique on Good Morning America.



Selkirk professor Gilles Parenteau showcased his one-man virtual symphony technique using his custom-designed keyboard setup on Good Morning America today, joining forces with break-out star alumna Kiesza.

The 25-year-old pop star appeared wearing New York Yankees baseball caps refashioned into a dress. It was recently announced she will have the lead single on the upcoming Finding Neverland soundtrack album, which also features J.Lo, Jon Bon Jovi, Christina Aguilera and the Goo Goo Dolls.

“I was really shocked when I saw all the artists who are singing—All these people? Really?—I was honoured to be included,” said Kiesza, who racked up 250 million views on her 2014 one-take music video “Hideaway”.

Along with Parenteau, Kiesza performed her song “Stronger”.

Coincidentally, Parenteau was in New York on the same day his son Michael was premiering a movie.

The Star has requested an interview with the pair upon their return.
