Bernard Davey, from Belfast, approached musician Jonathan Walker to ask if would join him for a rendition of jazz classic Summertime.

“As a busker, I spend a lot of time on the streets and had seen this man many times over the years, but didn’t know he was singer,” Walker explained on YouTube.

“I was blown away by his voice so I stopped a passerby and asked them to capture the moment on my camera phone,” he wrote.

The performance has already been viewed over 400,000 times on Facebook.
