Sebastian Mehenka covers "A Sky Full of Stars"

My wife pointed out Sebastian Mehenka's work on YouTube to me and  I enjoyed it. His video of "A Sky Full of Stars" in particular was well done. He covered it for his girlfriend and his clear earnest vocals carry the romantic song with a nice effects presence making it sound like he's singing in a large echoing room. The piano playing is nice and I'm pretty impressed by the visual content too. There are some interesting ideas and themes. BTW was that a shrimp or a lobster scooting along? Surprising yet fitting visual element, somehow.

He has other content worth checking out too.
Sebastian lives somewhere off in Canada near Toronto, nowhere near where I live, so YouTube may be the only way I'd ever see Sebastian's work. I always enjoy it when I stumble across nicely crafted music and listen to something unanticipated that I like.
