Two strangers whose paths crossed at a piano in Connolly Station were reunited on the Ray D’Arcy show on RTE earlier this month.

Darragh Smith, from Skerries, and Stephanie Sarpong, from Balbriggan, wowed the internet with their impromptu rendition of Say Something.

And the pair were reunited to finish their duet on national television – much to the delight of the audience and viewers.

Darragh was playing the piano at the train station when a girl walked up to him to sing the harmony of the song, by A Great Big World.

But the blushing teen ran off with her friends before he could even learn her name. As the video went viral, the young girl was eventually revealed to be Stephanie Sarpong.

Appearing on the Ray D’Arcy Show, the pair appear to have become firm friends since that first chance meeting, and they shared a hug after their performance.

“I loved every bit of that,” Darragh said, before Ray revealed that the show had organised for them to go and professionally record their cover of the track.

Darragh and Stephanie will lay down their vocals at Temple Lane Studios, which has hosted the likes of Rihanna, Kanye West and James Vincent McMorrow.
