Country cutie Kelsea Ballerini sure knows how to make a song sound amazing. Heck, her first three singles from her debut album, “The First Time,” all shot up to No. 1 on the country charts.

But aside from all of that, the 23-year-old star can also slay a cover. And, she proved that during a recent appearance on the Bobby Bones Show in Nashville.

Kelsea appeared on the nationally syndicated radio program on Dec. 1, as part of the annual St. Jude Radiothon. She wasn’t the only guest of honor on hand though. In fact, singer-songwriter David Barnes also showed up to participate. David is known for penning songs like Blake Shelton’s hit “God Gave Me You.”

Together, David and Kelsea performed the faith-filled track, and it was breathtakingly beautiful.

In this video, David accompanies Kelsea on guitar, while she belts out the ballad’s first verse. Then David takes the second verse before the pair joins together in epic harmony on lyrics that take them into the last chorus. Kelsea and David’s duet was one of a handful of in-studio performances that help raise money in the fight against child cancer.

If you love Kelsea, be sure to cast your vote for her in the 2016 Rare Country Awards. Kelsea is nominated for “New Artist of the Year.” To participate, vote now at Winners will be announced on Dec. 15.
