Oh my gosh, you wouldn’t believe this! A street performer at the Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California was singing his mashup of The Black Eyed Peas hit tunes, “I Gotta Feeling” and “Where Is The Love”. Suddenly, somebody decided to join in out of nowhere. Who is it, you may ask? Well, it’s no biggie, just the original artist of the song Will.i.am himself! The busker was just enjoying the rhythm as he performed his acoustic version of the two songs to entertain everyone.
But things got pretty interesting real quick when an awesome white Tesla ride pulled up behind him. And there came out the famous American rapper and member of The Black Eyed Peas, William Adams. The crowd couldn’t believe their eyes! At first, he was just feeling the music, watching the performer unassumingly on the side. The guitarist and singer Levi Mitchell didn’t even flinch at the sight of him and continued singing his heart out. Guess he truly had the feeling that it was gonna be a good night!
But not before long, Will.i.am finally decided to get in action, making the audience double in size. He walked up to the microphone and sang their piece, “I Gotta Feeling”, along with Levi. Eventually, the two then transitioned to the next song, “Where Is The Love”. It was exciting and beautiful! The impromptu performance has showcased the talented busker’s well-roundedness as he went from playing the guitar, singing, and even beatboxing! It also showed the undying talent and humility of the iconic Will.i.am.
The famous superstar even talked a bit about Black Lives Matter as the performance ended. “All lives matter, but right now, black lives matter,” he said. “Because of the things that are happening to us right now, we need white people to stand beside us. We’re all Americans at the end of the day.”
Watch the surprising performance below and see a simple busker have one of the most memorable times of his life with a musical legend!
This was actually filmed way back in 2017 but the message speaks volumes to what we exactly need during these trying times. Still, it got me questioning, where is the love?
