From a town known as Oyster Bay, Long Island...Billy Joel made the short drive over to Glen Cove to give some elementary school students a big surprise!
Deasy Elementary School in Glen Cove was holding a "River of Dreams" concert, in which their kindergarten, first and second graders, would be performing Billy Joel songs. The school invited Billy to the concert, but were not sure he would actually show up.
But, five minutes before show time, Joel arrived at the school on his motorcycle, and sat in the audience. He chose a seat in the rear of the school auditorium, so he wouldn't make the kids notice, according to school principal Nomi Rosen.
Joel lives in nearby Center Island.
