Man Stops By A Street Piano, Makes The Best Cover Of ‘Say Something’ There Is

Watch out, A Great Big World, this man's gorgeous cover of "Say Something" will stun you. A video uploaded to YouTube captures Michael McNamara performing on a Cobourg, Ontario, street piano in Canada. The piano, called "Foxgang Amadeus," was painted and placed on the streets as part of Cobourg's "Keys to Our Town" art initiative, according to the video description. The piano player's raw, impassioned vocals really demonstrate his amazing talent. He's got some pipes! Via Huffington Post   Talent doesn't know concert halls and big royalty checks. The video showcases Michael Anthony McNamara, a local Canadian, covering one of this years' biggest hits, 'Say Something' by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera. It was filmed by Katriona Dean, who initially designed and placed the piano (aptly named Foxgang Amadeus) on the streets of Cobourg for the "Keys to our Town" art initiative. Seriously, we can't stop rewinding it. Apparently, McNamara isn't totally new to the singing business. His SoundCloud channel features several other improvisations. Despite the sudden fame of his latest hit, artist stays humble: "It was brutal! I don't have much of a low range- I sounded like the dwarves at the beginning of the first Hobbit movie," McNamara wrote in the comment on YouTube.
