Rick Astley sings with Choir! Choir! Choir!

Rick Astley is getting around lately. We recently saw him on a Canadian morning show for a live, in-person rickroll. Now he's singing his 1987 hit song, "Never Gonna Give You Up," with Choir! Choir! Choir! in Toronto.

Here's what Choir! Choir! Choir! wrote about it:

In March 2018, we made a video asking pop legend Rick Astley to come sing with us.

We just had a feeling it would be a perfect fit.

HE SHOWED UP two weeks later!!

And guess what?

We were right,

But it was even more incredible than we could have expected.

Rick looks and sounds better than ever.

He's back in a BIG way writing and performing all new material, Slaying it all over again.

He is the real deal, and always has been.

He also challenged another musician to come sing with us,

So look for that at the end of the video...

Rick is back on tour throughout the US right now, and his band is killer, So look out for him making his way to your town!

Now enjoy the best version of Never Gonna Give You Up EVER!
