With apologies to Christopher Cross, this isn’t one of those moments that happen when you get caught between the moon and New York City. This is one of those serendipitous moments that happen when you get caught between the Earth’s core and New York City. And it’s spectacular.

If the YouTube descripton on this video is true and this isn’t a viral stunt (it doesn’t look like one), this is one of those unplanned moments that happen all the time in Manhattan.

“Okay- What you are about to watch is a true New York experience. What originally started out as a typical NYC subway ride (sitting across from guy who smelled like urine) turned into an awesome performance by two people who have never met before,” writes first-time poster mybs86. “I captured the whole thing on video. The singer continued with another great song after the entire subway car demanded an encore. Her name is Jessica Latshaw- make sure to check out her music.”

That’s awesome stuff right there. If you’re so inclined, find Latshaw through her Facebook page.

So if you’re keeping track at home, New York City gets this fabulous performance, Berlin gets a U-Bahn full of laughing strangers, and London gets a racist lady on a tram. Sorry, England.
