One man secretly filmed his wife singing a cover of Vance Joy’s hit single “Riptide” and it sounds pretty amazing.
In a video posted to YouTube Tuesday, TJ McConahay, a youth pastor in Oregon, claims to show the world his shy wife’s musical talent, according to The Blaze.
“I was listening to my wife play and sing last night,” the husband wrote in the video description. “She is so talented and I knew I shouldn’t be the only one to get to hear her play — so I hid a camera.”
McConahay explains that his wife Brittany used to sing and perform music in front of people all the time, but because of vocal nodes, she is now nervous about going up on stage.
“Before you judge me or the state of my marriage you should know, when I told my wife about this posting she was actually pretty excited,” McConahay writes. “So many people left great comments about her voice! Truthfully, she used to sing, perform and write lots of songs back in college (mid 2000’s). Unfortunately, The reason she hasn’t really performed in long time is because she developed vocal nodes several years ago. Since then her confidence in her voice has been shot, only really singing in church. This post has been healing for her and she is very thankful for all the positive posts– as am I.”
The video has gone viral since it was first posted to YouTube on Feb. 10, racking up nearly 250,000 views as of this writing. Maybe they can sing a love song duet, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
