Song: David Guetta’s “Titanium”
Why we’re obsessed: We first saw Noah when he performed a bluesey version of LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” — proving that the song can actually sound classy. His new acoustic cover for “Titanium” is even more electrifying than the storm literally happening right outside my window right now. According to his YouTube channel, he likes to make music with minimal effects and tricks, yet his simple covers capture a spark of something incredible.
Since Noah’s cover really only consists of him strumming the guitar, he can showcase his intriguing chops and visible passion as an artist. More than 106,000 views in six days is well earned.
Background: At just 18, this South Carolina native has been wowing us all by uploading various top 40 covers since 2010. Strumming the guitar or playing the piano, Noah notes he loves all kinds of music, but what he writes is pretty “organic” and includes some good melodies, lyrics and a message.

Little Noah has the cutest reaction to drinking root beer. While I’m not entirely sure if he’s making that face out of enjoyment or disgust, I’d have to say the latter. Seeing that I’ve never enjoyed root beer, I make the exact same face each time I have a sip of the beverage.
A classy cover of LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It?” I know it’s shocking, but it’s actually possible. You just have to change the song’s beat, tempo and vibe drastically.
I love this cover by Noah, which turns the electronic song into a blusey and soulful track. Other than the lyrics, it’s hard to hear the original track in his arrangement. On YouTube, one commenter wrote: “sexiest version ever ! His voice is like pure sex.”
The 18-year-old singer and songwriter is from South Carolina and writes on his Facebook page: “As you may have guessed, I’m obsessed with all things music. I love all kinds of music but most of what I write for myself is pretty organic. I’m not into a lot of effects and tricks. Just good melodies and lyrics with something to say.”
