    While there were many talented artists featured on Kanye West's DONDA, we're potentially most impressed by the piano player on Come To Life, because they're still young enough to be in primary school.

    In an Instagram post, the Kaufman Music Center, located in New York, revealed that one of their students, "6th grader Zen Micheline Hung", featured on Come To Life, posting a picture of four of their students alongside Kanye.

    The caption reads, "How cool is this? 6th grader Zen Micheline Hung, a student at #SpecialMusicSchool, our K-12 NYC public school that teaches music as a core subject, played piano during a live performance of a song called “Come to Life” at one of the listening events for Kanye West's new album, Donda!" 

    Come To Life is one of the final songs on DONDA, with the piano section being arguably the most memorable part of the track.  Hung's posted videos of her piano playing on YouTube, and after checking them out (as well as hearing the pianos on Come To Life), it's pretty obvious that Kanye made the right call.

    Fans reacted to the news with surprise, as you'd expect. It's definitely a reminder of just how talented young people can be, and proof that Kanye's open to working with anyone if they've got the talent.
