Young Irish buskers perform dreamy duet of Elvis classic

July 2nd, 2021

Elvis Presley had a rich voice, and he knew how to entertain a crowd. Therefore, the King of Rock and Roll would be proud of the duo who covered his 1961 huge hit “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

Allie Sherlock and Cuand Durkin are young buskers from Ireland, UK. You’ll find several videos of them performing together on Allie’s official YouTube channel, and we’ve picked out the fantastic rendition of Presley’s legendary ballad. Allie typically sings on Grafton Steet, and her fans know where to find her.

More than 3 million people have seen the video so far, and you’ll enjoy every note they sing. Just wait until they sing mind-blowing harmonies and thank us later.

Despite being incredibly young, Allie has already performed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, and she’s got a YouTube platform with almost 5 million subscribers.

People love Allie’s charming voice, and she’s garnered 1.5M followers on Instagram. That’s quite a fanbase for a 16-year-old girl whose career took off in 2014. Sherlock was 9-years-old at the time when she began posting videos on YouTube. In 2018, Allie signed a five-year contract with Patriot Records.

According to her official website, Allie sings, plays ukulele, guitar, and piano. Sherlock has recently released an EP titled “A Part of Me.”

Sadly, Allie’s mom passed away when Allie was just a little girl, and her dad films all her performances today. Both were equally baffled when Allie stood behind the mic for the first time. The adorable girl’s got a powerful voice, and her dad commented that he “didn’t even know she could sing like that.”

Grafton Street seems to be a lucky place because that’s where Cuan and Allie first met.

Cuan Durkin is a talented 18-year-old singer and guitar player who’s had some opera training while he was younger. In 2020, Durkin’s dreams came true when he got an offer to play the lead role in Cinderella Live Online.

“It will be an amazing experience to be working on this clever production that will give the audience the feeling that they are sitting in the theatre,” Cuan explained. Cuan Durkin studied in the Royal Irish Academy of Music since he was four, and he listed Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin as his role models.

Look at those smiles; both singers share the same passion for music.

You can clearly see that performing is what makes Allie and Duan happy. They look at each other proudly every time one of them hits the high note perfectly. The way they share the spotlight selflessly is inspiring. The video shows two young, talented people who enjoy working together, and the audience can feel it.

Take a quick look at all the people around them. Everyone’s enjoying the spectacular street performance.

It’s hard to believe that such mature voices come from people that are actually so young. Allie and Cuan complement each other’s voice naturally. The way they sing makes it sound easy. Elvis Presley’s fans should be proud of this unique cover that bursts with talent and emotion.
