Street performances are fun but sometimes they are downright amazing. Here’s one that’s garnered over 9 million views in just a few months on YouTube.
He probably didn’t know the woman was Laura Michaels, another YouTube singer, who has an amazing voice. After a little warmup and synchronization, the two start playing and the result is magic.
The song is “Stand by Me,” the classic originally by Ben E. King in 1961 but since covered by dozens of artists (with King’s version ultimately inducted into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress, as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”).
As these two get rolling, the crowd starts filming and eventually she gets them to sing along. It’s a great impromptu performance that probably made the day for everyone involved.
