In this video, Lindsey Stirling and The Tenors have reimagined the context for the song, making it about a cadre of vampires singing about the downside to their immortality. It’s an interesting twist, and it makes for some great visual drama.

The Tenors – Clifton, Fraser, and Victor have been thrilling audiences around the world with their powerful songs, outstanding harmonies, and undeniable charm.Blending classical music and contemporary pop, the award-winning and multi-platinum selling band have achieved international success, performing over 1000 live shows and hundreds of TV appearances on five continents.

The Canadian vocal super group have performed for the last four Presidents of the United States, including at the White House Christmas Tree Lighting for the Obama family, for the world leaders at the G20 Summit, for the opening ceremonies of the XXI Olympic Winter Games, for Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, The Oprah Winfrey Show with Celine Dion, The Primetime Emmy Awards, and the NBC Tree Lighting Ceremony at Rockefeller Centre.

The Tenors have had the honor of sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in music including Sir Paul McCartney, Sarah McLachlan, Sting, Justin Bieber, Andrea Bocelli, Sir Elton John, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, and David Foster.

Lindsey Stirling is an American violinist, singer, songwriter, and dancer. She presents choreographed violin performances, both live and in music videos found on her eponymous YouTube channel, which she created in 2007.

Stirling has carved out a niche for herself in the music industry. Violinists are not commonly performance artists, because frankly, playing an instrument like a violin requires some pretty solid skills to start with, skills which don’t typically play nice with dancing or stage performance.

Because her focus is on the violin and not vocals, she features voice artists in many of her tracks. These have included artists from Elle King to Imagine Dragons – however, she is every bit the vocal powerhouse herself, and does sing on some of her own videos.

Her newest album is Artemis, out now.
