Mad World is a song that was originally written by Tears For Fears but covered many times. This Mad World live cover was arranged by Gary Jules and made famous by the movie “Donnie Darko”.
This Mad World live vocal cover and piano cover by Gary Jules was performed at a coffeehouse in Seal Beach, CA at a show I setup specifically for my students. The girl in the video playing the live piano cover of Mad World is only 8 years old. The live performance events helps students gain confidence, boost self-esteem, and of course practice harder than ever.
Yes, there are a few mistakes, but to really see the beauty in this video, you should understand that my piano student is only 8 years old, and this is only her second time performing in front of a live audience. When you factor that in, it becomes clear that she’s actually pretty good.
