SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Music fans from all over knew the place to be Wednesday night was the Savannah Civic Center as Yanni brought his brand of world music to the area.

His music has been used in the Olympics and for fundraisers across the globe. Before taking stage, Chatham County Commission Chairman Pete Liakakis gave Yanni the key to the city.

"I have been all over the world. I'm very touched. Savannah is a great place," said Yanni.

Yanni was born in Greece and taught himself how to play piano.
