Katharine McPhee and David Foster decided to perform an impromptu ‘Hallelujah’ duet while homebound during the coronavirus pandemic. And they sure sounded amazing!
As the nation tries to limit the spread of COVID-19, most of us are stuck at home. That was the case for married couple Katharine McPhee and David Foster. So, they turned to social media with their musical talents in order to kill time.
"We're new at this. We're going to be coming to you every day," David Foster says at the beginning of the video, sharing their plans to share daily clips of the couple singing.
"Cause we're bored! But we're sticking with the program for the greater good," says Katharine McPhee. "This is crazy times."
‘Hallelujah’ — The Quarantine Version
The pair decide to sing ‘Hallelujah' and David begins to play the introduction of the song.
"Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah"
Katharine McPhee's beautiful vocals pair beautifully with David Foster's impressive piano accompaniment. Then during the second verse of the song, David joins in with his singing.
"So happy I came here; we need this during this time of uncertainty. Music is very healing," writes one YouTube user about the video.
"You guys are so adorable! Made my day!" comments another person on YouTube. "Too much talent all in one house! Love it when David sings. Those harmonies! We need more!"
Later in the video, Katharine McPhee and David Foster perform a beautiful version of the song ‘Smile.'
"We love to do this song together," she shares.
"Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you"
Finally, the pair ends their video singing the song ‘Unforgettable' by Nat King Cole.
