Teen Sings Incredible Cover Of ‘Having You Near Me’ While His Friends Play Acoustics


The band, singing the cover of the popular Australian band, even got nicknamed Pinoy Air Supply.

The video begins with 16-year-old Jhong introducing the players—Ivan on lead guitar and Samuel on bass guitar (they are just as good as the singer)! They didn’t plan to upload a cover on YouTube, they were just playing for their enjoyment, but Zacky Kandalayang, the man recording them, asked if he could record them when he saw them playing in a sari-sari store. He was just as amazed as you will be when you watch!

From the picture above, you can already tell that Jhong is about to sing passionately and beautifully.

One of the best parts of this video—besides the music, of course—is Jhong’s smile while he sings! It brings a smile to your face when he does that. He’s obviously very passionate about his singing, and what’s better than seeing that passion on someone’s face?
