Singapore school teacher sings 'with' Jessie J

The thought of singing a Jessie J song would be unnerving for some people. 

How would one feel about doing a duet with her? 

Singapore teacher Fairus Adam wasn't afraid to showcase his vocals in a performance "with" the powerhouse vocalist.

According to Fairus's Facebook page, he teaches at Wellington Primary School.

Jessie J had called for fans to perform a duet of her Pitch Perfect 2 song Flashlight "with her" through Sing! Karaoke by Smule, an app that allows users to record covers of hit songs.

Viral

In the video, the talented teacher shows off his incredible vocal range as he belts out the song with a pre-recorded Jessie.

It's so convincing that it could be mistaken for a live duet.

Fairus's talent didn't go unnoticed by others.

Since the video was uploaded on Facebook on Sunday (May 24), it has been viewed by more than 250,000 people. 

Fairus wrote in his post: "I sang with JESSIE J (in a singing app)!!!!! *faints*."

"PS: Jessie J does not know of my existence. Just sharing my singing that's all. This is just a singing app."

 

 

Jessie J's Flashlight isn't the only song Fairus has tackled. If you can't get enough of his voice, you can check other stunning covers he has done on YouTube.

Say Something - Austin Mahone and his fans


American pop singer Austin Mahone even used the app to include his fans in a special music video for his song Say Something.

 

Sing! Karaoke is an application developed by Smule that allows aspiring singers to record themselves performing songs by their favourite artists. 

Users can opt to sing solo or join a duet or group song. 

By choosing to join a duet, a user can perform a song with another member of the Sing! community, whose part has been pre-recorded.

The app is free to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
