It comes as no surprise that Kanye West‘s DONDA album finds itself with a large list of creators stemming from different backgrounds.

In a recent tweet from the Kaufman Music Center, they revealed that one of their students was featured on one of Kanye’s tracks. Specifically, a sixth-grader by the name of Zen Micheline Hung was the pianist who played on the emotional DONDA track. “Come To Life” is the album’s twenty-second track and features an instrumental ensemble with a prominent piano interlude.

The Kaufman Music Center wrote on Twitter to confirm the Zen Michelline Hung’s contribution to the track, “How cool is this? 6th grader Zen Micheline Hung (far right), a student at #SpecialMusicSchool, our K-12 NYC public school that teaches music as a core subject, plays piano on a song called “Come to Life” on @kanyewest ‘s new album, “Donda”!” The center also shared a clip of the young pianist performing the particular part from “Come To Life” at an early age.
