This Singer Stripped Down Alessia Cara's 'Stay' To Play This Beautiful Piano Cover

"Always love finding the beauty and emotion in these more up-tempo pop songs."

In a video uploaded to YouTube, Sam Tsui performs a cover of Alessia Cara and Zedd's "Stay" on the piano — and it's beautiful.

For this particular cover, Tsui slows down the original track and adds in impressive piano instrumental breaks, reworking the original track to make it his own. 

"I thought I'd strip it down with another simple piano/vocal cover," Tsui captions on the video. "Always love finding the beauty and emotion in these more up-tempo pop songs and sharing with you guys."

And Tsui viewers are loving it too: nearly 200,000 people have watched his video since its release earlier this month.

"I've never put a video on repeat so many times," one person comments.
