Emotional Cover Of “Tears In Heaven” By Teen Street Performer

Experience this emotional cover of “Tears in Heaven” by teen street performer, Allie Sherlock. Hers is a beautiful rendering of a song borne out of grief and loss.

Eric Clapton wrote the ballad after tragically losing his 4-year-old son, Conor, in March 1991. The song was recorded later that year, released in January 1992, and became Eric Clapton’s best-selling single in the United States. And, though the singer, songwriter, and guitarist suffered great pain during that time, he attributes the loss to helping him build a closer relationship with his daughter.    

Here is the first verse of “Tears in Heaven”:

Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on ‘
Cause I know I don't belong Here in heaven

Like Eric Clapton, Allie Sherlock is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Mr. Clapton was born in Surrey, England. Allie is based in Cork, Ireland, and has become widely recognized by performing in Dublin’s streets on the weekends. 

One of the most fun things about exploring a large city is seeing all of the interesting performers and acts in the streets! Discovering Allie on a glorious sunny day is clearly a treat for those watching her perform. She sings beautifully and while many keep moving, we see a large audience that stops and savors her song!

Allie’s young life hasn’t been without trials. Allie left elementary school to be homeschooled after being a victim of bullying. And she lost her mother when she was just 9 years old. So “Tears in Heaven” may have special meaning for her—as it does for so many.

Imagine how challenging it must be to sing and play so well with all of the distractions of a busy city street! Busking is tough, but Allie began doing it when she was just 11 years old! Now 17, Allie is now under contract with Patriot Records. 

With years of performing experience already, Allie has a bright future! Her social media presence is significant. She has 1.9 million followers on Instagram, 26,000 thousand on Twitter, and more than 3.1 followers on Facebook! 

“Laughter can conceal a heavy heart, but when the laughter ends, the grief remains.” Proverbs 14:13
