WATCH: AJ Rafael, Kurt Hugo Schneider cover 'Thinking Out Loud'
MANILA, Philippines – What happens when your two favorite YouTube musicians cover one of your favorite songs?
Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" is quickly becoming a classic, but Kurt and AJ's cover put a different spin to it.
In their cover, AJ's smooth voice blends in with the instrumentals Kurt is known for – using found objects to create music. Kurt used a coin, knives, and even refreshed his Twitter news feed to accomapany the melody of the piano in the background.
As is usual with Kurt, the visuals in the video are just as much a part of the performance as the song. "Thinking Out Loud" is another one of Kurt's one-take videos, making his timing for all the background instrumentals even more amazing.
Both AJ and Kurt were in Manila recently, AJ to attend the wedding of his friend, Gab Valenciano, and Kurt for the YouTube Fan Fest in Manila. Kurt also had a concert in the Philippines with singer Sam Tsui last year.
AJ and Kurt also collaborated last month, on a cover of OMI's "Cheerleader." Listen to it below:
