‘Lady Gaga’- the name is synonymous with everything outrageous, and definitely out of the normal train of thought. This is perhaps the reason for her rise in fame, and the different accolades she has won over the years. Any item of personal use of such a star will be a must on the wish list of fans. So the same is with the Grand Piano which is to be auctioned off, in partnership with auction house Charity Buzz.
The instrument which was last used by Lady Gaga, during her performance in May this year at New York, will be put on auction to raise money for young aspiring artists, through an organization called Ten ‘o’ Clock Classics. The funds raised will be used to provide performing venues to these artists’ performances. Wearing a yellow and black bumblebee ensemble, the pop-star performed her famous numbers including This way, Bad Romance, Alejandro, Judas and Orange Colored Sky at the Robinhood Foundation party in New York.
Since attention-seeking activities are an integral part of Lady Gaga’s performances, this gig had her dance a top the grand piano , to the tune of Americano, before rendering her hit numbers on the instrument. For all those who might have not known, Lady Gaga is a trained pianist, and has been performing with a piano since her earliest days as an artist. Coming from such a known figure, the bid will start at a price of $60,000, and is slated to fetch much more. What also makes this piano unique is the fact that it’s a one off product from the house of Steinway, known for making such famed musical instruments.
This auction however, hasn’t been the first instance of Lady Gaga’s personal instruments going for sale. Previous auctions include the sale of a grand piano after a performance with Terrance Koh, and the Damien Hirst painted pink piano which was auctioned off for $450,000.
So for all those music connoisseurs, here is something from Lady Gaga, worth collecting!
