Posted on Oct. 23, a video featuring two Irish boys with stellar voices singing Rihanna's "We Found Love" has gone viral with almost 360,000 views. The clip simply features the two boys with an acoustic guitar and the addition of new rap verse to the song.
According to YouTube user djminiedwards, the video's guitarist/rapper is a 16-year-old artist named Harrison Dodo (a.k.a. 'Harribo',). On Dodo's Facebook page, he reveals that he and the singer, Rob Scanlon, are part of a new band called Fresh Era.
The group consists of members Cian Francois (guitar), Ashlee Scanlon (vocals), Daryl Bengo (keyboard), Scanlon and Dodo. They all hail from Celbridge, Ireland, and recently appeared on Dublin radio station Spin 1038 to perform their cover of Rihanna's song as a full band.
"These kids are awesome. Love the accent when he's singing. He sings from his heart," one viewer commented on YouTube after watching the clip featuring just Scanlon and Dodo.
