And in a video uploaded on YouTube, a very talented couple makes their own rendition of the critically-acclaimed song.

With over six million views as of writing, the song cover of Alyssa Shouse with her then-fiancé now-husband Charles Longoria is a certified hit.

He takes the role of Jack played by Bradley Cooper in this song. He has the same raspy but soothing voice as the actor, and the way he plays with the guitar is just amazing.

He captures the sadness in the same hoarse manner, emptiness vivid in the way he sings the lyrics, the melancholy just seeps into his core and comes out in his performance.

Alyssa, on the other hand, is a small girl with immense talent and a big voice.

She has that certain clarity in her loud voice as she tells the tale of Ally, portrayed by Lady Gaga.

Her voice is really perfect for the rock power ballad, as she effortlessly belts out the chorus whilst hitting the top notes easily. Her wide vocal range is evident in this performance as she strikes the lowest notes, and smashing the high notes without the need for a falsetto.

Not only is she a talented singer—she is also a songwriter and an actress!

She used to participate in school talent shows since third grade and also in competitions before launching her hit YouTube channel in 2008.

Her singing career just continued to boom until she was discovered by Jason Derulo, and signed to his music label Future History.

“Shallow” is a pivotal moment in A Star Is Born, since it speaks about Ally and Jackson’s conversations.

Gaga wrote it from Ally’s point of view with the self-aware lyrics asking each other if they are satisfied being who they are.

They s their need and drive to go deep and move away from the shallow area in their relationship. And Alyssa and Charles gave justice to the song with their performance.

The couple’s stunning duet featuring a striking harmony as their voices blended and complimented each other perfectly is really fantastic.
