Ngaiire has gone from strength-to-strength over the past few months off the back of last year’s Once and Stevens was obviously impressed with her getting her to sing Chicago with him in Brisbane.
In footage captured by a fan (found by AU Review), Ngaiire and Stevens perform the song backed by two guitarists and a back-up singer, delivering an acoustic but potent version of the track.
Ngaiire adds a soulful flavour to the song and even shares a pretty cute moment with Stevens when they look each other in the eye smirking.
Stevens was touring off the back of his emotional 2015 record Carrie & Lowell. He was also in the country last year for VIVD Live, performing the album from start to finish.
Ngaiire has just dropped her new single Diggin, her first since Once.
