    He has been praised for revolutionizing electric cars and inventing new means of transportation. His groundbreaking ideas in the space industry, made famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, called Musk "the best thing the US has had since Thomas Edison" and "the most important person alive". Now Musk has earned another title -the best parent!

    Elon Musk’s recent tweet made the internet almost drown in tears after he announced that he took his son to play the piano for seniors at a nursing home in Pasadena.

    ​Following a request from a user who wanted to see the performance, Musk included a short video clip. The tech visionary has five sons from his marriage with Canadian author Justine Wilson. It is not known which of the five sons appears in the video as Musk is very private about his personal life, but it appears he does a splendid job, playing Claude Debussy's "Deux Arabesques".

    ​Netizens were overjoyed by Musk’s decision to visit the seniors' home with some calling the 48-year-old engineer the best dad.

    ​Other users noted that Musk’s offspring are as talented as their father and prophesied he will make a career in classical music.

    ​Many users spoke about the need to spend time with elders, while others contended that Musk must devote his time to more pressing issues…

    ​Still, others waited for updates about Tesla’s pickup truck that Musk promised to showcase this November. The tech visionary confessed recently that Tesla’s new brainchild looked like an armoured personal carrier from the future.

    ​Musk is heavily involved in philanthropy. In 2011 Musk Foundation donated 250 thousand dollars to a solar power project in a Japanese city that was devastated by a tsunami. Most recently he donated almost half a million dollars to help solve the water crisis in a US city in Michigan.
