In young adulthood, people generally live in all kinds of apartments before they get into a more settled place.
When we start out living in our own homes and apartments, we’re generally renting places that are pretty small or have something significantly wrong with them. Maybe there’s no washer and dryer on-site.
Maybe there’s cockroaches living nearby (or even in your cabinets). Whatever the case, we gradually upgrade our apartments over time and live in nicer and nicer places until we can afford a place of our own.
Still, the nicer end of the rental places we all have at some point are the apartment complexes with concierges at the front door.
If you live in a city like LA or NYC, chances are you’ve either lived in or seen one of these apartment complexes with a doorman.
Although it’s nice for a renter to have someone like this at the front of the apartment, the truth is that being the person at the front of the building is typically a pretty boring job.
You sit around either all day or all night, making sure nothing is going wrong in the lobby and fielding the questions and concerns of the renters there. Needless to say, any kind of engagement or activity you get while on the job means a lot.
For those reasons and others, one video has been making the rounds on the internet.
The video was uploaded to YouTube by Tommi Rose, a woman with a small YouTube channel dedicated to music.
Rose explained exactly what happened in her description to the video:
“So about a month or two ago I was waiting in the lobby of my friend Sacha’s apartment building, for my mom to pick me up, and I heard this guy singing. He was so good so I told him that he was amazing and he was super sweet and humble about it, and so I told him that I sing too and we talked about that kind of stuff for a while until my mom came and picked me up. Now, a month or two later, I was going to Sacha’s apartment again for a graduation party, and as I was leaving, i insisted that he sing with me. Needless to say, he is absolutely incredible, and it just proves that you can find amazing things in unexpected places.”
As it turns out, their performance together was amazing!
When it begins, the concierge is singing “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.
Though he’s on the job, he still lets his voice soar through the lobby of the complex, loud and proud for everyone to hear. After that, Rose does her version of the song as well which is just as beautiful but with a different tone and approach.
Even though there are plenty of people milling by in the background, these two are in their own little musical world, paying no attention to any of it.
When it’s all over, the people watching cheer and Rose and the concierge share a big hug! So far, the video has more than two million views on YouTube!
