Mark has surprised fans with a cover of the Ed Sheeran mega-hit ‘Thinking Out Loud’, in which he shows off his newly improved singing voice

Markiplier has surprised fans by uploading a video showing him singing and playing the guitar. In the new video, Mark performs a cover of the Ed Sheeran smash hit ‘Thinking Out Loud’, with his beloved dog Chica sat in the background providing moral support. In the description of the video Mark Says:

“Well… here it is! This cover of Ed Sheeran is that super secret thing that I disappeared for a few days to work on and a good representation of where I stand after about 3 months of serious singing and guitar practice!”

Take a look at his performance here and let us know what you think of his pipes in the comments below, or on our Facebook page:

 


“I’ve found a joy in music that I’ve never felt before”

Of his performance, Mark says: “It’s obviously rough around the edges and full of missed notes but I thought it was important that I take the big step to show you guys where I stand RIGHT NOW without any special effects or audio editing. I’ve found a joy in music that I’ve never felt before and I’m gonna take the same approach to it that I’ve taken with everything else I’ve done with you guys. I’m gonna show you the good AND the bad and never stop trying to improve. So thanks for watching and let me know what you think!”

We don’t know about you, but we think his voice is pretty damn silky considering he’s only been practicing for a few months. But then again, when is Mark’s voice ever not silky?


Mark has sung a tiny bit before

But only in little snippets. Luckily YouTuber user X had the foresight to collect all the instances of Mark singing into one handy video. It’s a little old now, but it’s still a quality watch – particularly the little Rick Astley segment. Check it out:
