One Christmas gift changed everything for Elton John.

In the 140-second ad, John is in his home during the holidays, sitting at an old upright piano on which he plays his classic “Your Song”.

Quickly things zip away to John in a concert playing the song, only for the ad to zip away again, this time to other actors portraying younger versions of the 71-year-old singer.

The scenes change from different points in John’s storied career, eventually landing on the touching moment he received his piano as a child one Christmas morning.

The John Lewis ad promotes the company’s range of pianos, which they will be selling again for the first time in 70 years, according to the Telegraph.

“The John Lewis Christmas campaign has so many warm memories for me and my family,” John said in a statement. “It’s been a lovely opportunity for me to reflect on my life in music and the incredible journey I have been on, and how first playing my grandmother’s piano marks the moment when music came into my life. The ad is absolutely fantastic and I’ve truly loved every minute of being a part of it.”
