On TikTok, Vincent shared his four-minute piano performance, which captured his reaction when the OPM singer suddenly approached him and requested to play Stevie Wonder’s “You Are the Sunshine of My Life.”

OMG I still can’t believe I got to jam with @christianbautista_ while I was playing the piano at Aura!! What an insane encounter,” he captioned his post.
