Friend Begs Her To Sing ‘Killing Me Softly,” Then She Grabs Violin & Blows Her Away With Incredible Cover.

Music is a unique art form because it is one that everyone can find happiness in, whether through creating it yourself or just enjoying the sound. With so many genres available there is bound to be at least one out there for everyone to enjoy.

Because there are so many talented musicians out there, it is truly refreshing when a new one is found who has a different style and technique.


Which is why we were so excited when we discovered a young violinist named Ada Pasternak. When the video starts, Ada’s friend asks her to play a cover of a popular song. Then she picks up her violin and begins strumming it.

Slowly, the notes begin to form into the song “Killing Me Softly” by Roberta Flack and Ada breaks out into a soulful vocal rendition of the song.


Eventually Ada’s cover turns into a freestyle violin solo. As she combines the extraordinary skill of singing and playing at the same time, there is a look of sincere joy on her face.


Ada is a graduate from the Berklee College of Music where she had a full scholarship. She is now touring the country performing her unique music.
