Street Performer's Stunning Cover Of Elton John Classic 'Your Song'

Listening to beautiful music by street performers can be a great way to spend your afternoon. But, if you can’t be there in person, listening to a street performer on a video is the next best thing. 

Allie Sherlock, an Irish singer, guitarist, and YouTube personality from Cork, Ireland is also a street performer in Dublin. In this video, she gives a powerful cover of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ with David Hayden on the piano. 

As you watch the video you can see people gathering around to listen to her and David. They work well together and their musical ability draws people in. Allie definitely has the talent to perform this cover song. 

Those in the comments agree as one commenter states, “Allie, this is a beautiful rendition of one of Elton's loveliest songs from you and David. You both performed superbly! Thank you for sharing” and another says, “Incredible talent with both these amazing musicians! Allie and David are just wonderful together and apart!! Thanks for sharing!!”

‘Your Song’ was written by Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin. The song was first released by the rock band, Three Dog Night in March of 1970. Elton was an opening act for the band and permitted them to do so. In October 1970, he released his version of the song on his album, Elton John. 

‘Your Song’ was later inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998. 

These lyrics from the chorus are perfect for a love song, especially the line, “How wonderful life is while you're in the world.”

“I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is
While you're in the world”

“And now stays faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” - 1 Corinthians 13:13
