Listen As Us The Duo Combines Two Pop Hits Into One Beautiful Song

Aaaand we love it, obviously.

In their last few videos on YouTube, Michael and Carissa Alvarado of Us the Duo gave viewers a glimpse into their summer tour with acapella group Pentatonix. 

But in their most recent video, the duo is back, performing a mash-up of two hits: "Stay" by Zedd featuring Alessa Cara and "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith. For this particular performance, both Michael and Carissa perform vocals, with Michael adding in piano instrumentals and a little beat-boxing magic.


Thanks to Us the Duo and their knack for mashing up all of our favorites, the Zedd and Smith songs melt perfectly together, and we're melting a little bit, too. 

"Your music is so lovely, amazing and calms me down. I love you guys so much!" one viewer comments on YouTube. 

Us the Duo will be heading to New York and Los Angeles this December to celebrate the holidays with two special performances. 

Check out their performance below:
