Video: Jesse Lingard sings Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles
Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard has used an unlikely marketing tactic to drum up subscribers for his newly launched YouTube channel.
The England international shared a video on Twitter showing him covering Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles.
Lingard declares that YouTube is not ready for him, before launching into the American singer-songwriter pianist’s 2002.
If that doesn’t make you want to subscribe to Lingard’s YouTube channel then, well, we don’t really blame you.
A Thousand Miles got up to number six in the official UK charts on August 3, 2002. Anyone Of Us (Stupid Mistake) by Gareth Gates topped the charts that week.
