Playing one instrument is challenging enough by itself, but when you add multiple instruments, only the most musically inclined can pull it off.
That’s part of what makes this live cover of the Foo Fighters, mixed with some Bobby Caldwell from ’70s, so impressive. The whole performance is brilliantly crafted together by one talented woman using loop machines.
This will blow your mind—it’s hard to believe only one person is responsible for this awesome cover!
Elise Trouw is a YouTube star known for her sensational music—and her cover of the Foo Fighters mixed with Bobby Caldwell took the internet by storm.
Back in 2018, Trouw’s cover mashup went massively viral, touching people from both generations of music. It starts with the music from the Foo Fighters’ song “Everlong.” In the beginning, she goes from instrument to instrument, recording it on loops so she can sing as well.
Only when she sits down to begin singing do you realize how magical her voice is. Instead of singing the Foo Fighters lyrics, Trouw switches it up with the words from Bobby Caldwells, “What You Won’t Do For Love.”
The ’70s classic mixes extremely well with the popular rock song from the ’90s.
Trouw has the voice of an angel, and she sits at the piano creating new loops all while singing “What You Won’t Do For Love.” The way she effortlessly plays the instruments leaves viewers mesmerized. It’s no wonder her YouTube channel has 511,000 subscribers!
For her to play this cover completely on her own really showcases her talent and puts her in a league of her own. The whole time, Trouw adds new loop after loop to create a blended masterpiece.
Just when you thought Trouw couldn’t get any more musically inclined, she hops on the drums to add yet another instrument to the array.
She is extraordinary to have a mind that can process so many sounds at once! The whole time, Trouw faultlessly keeps the songs blended to every new sound she adds, the drums being the last.
To end the one-woman ensemble, she plays a ridiculous solo on the drums just for some extra flare. People on the internet lost their minds for the blended cover song. Tens of millions were fascinated by the unique musician.
Over 12.2 million YouTube users viewed the Foo Fighters and ’70s Bobby Caldwell mash-up.
Millions of people instantly viewed the video, with 342,000 liking it and almost 14,500 leaving inspiring comments. Luckily for them, Trouw has a whole bunch of tremendous music to check out on her YouTube Channel!
“Okay this is one of those moments when your breath is taken away. An angel playing the strings so well that she’s touching your heart. And you can’t decide whether you want to enjoy the music or that beauty playing in front of you. I thank YouTube for not making this masterpiece 5$ per watch. Because that’s something I would pay for gladly.” Said one YouTube viewer.
“I am lost for words.. Everything in this video is just perfect, two great songs put together in such a good way, sung by a girl with an amazing voice who can also play every instrument that you’ll ever need to write a good song and is she’s damn gorgeous, I’m weak at the knees.” Said another user on YouTube.
