A homeless man has become something of an internet sensation after a video was uploaded of him singing ‘Summertime’ with a busker.
Bernard Davey asked if he could jam with the street performer, Jonathan Walker on New Year’s Eve in Leeds. But surely no-one expected him to actually be any good.
But, much like the scene in The Simpsons where the beautiful voice that Homers hears coming from the Gents toilets unbelievably belongs to Barney, Davey’s voice is surprisingly glorious.
Watch them perform the Gershwin classic, ‘Summertime’ below:
“My spontaneous street jam with Bernard Davey was a soul-affirming, enriching experience which summed up everything I love about street culture,” wrote Walker on YouTube.
“I hope Bernard’s amazing improvised version of ‘Summertime’ helps people to remember not to judge people they see on the streets according to their appearances, but to always look below the surface appearance and find the person underneath.”
