Getting his start on the Disney channel—as many of today’s biggest stars from Demi Lovato to Selena Gomez have—Ross Lynch has made a name for himself in the music industry through his unique sound and style. Growing up in the spotlight, the star has acquired a wide fanbase of musicians and vocalists alike, so it’s really no surprise that people all over the world have taken to YouTube to cover some of his catchiest hits.
Which is exactly why we asked the singer to sift through covers of his tracks for our latest installment of You Sang My Song. Watching acoustic versions of his songs like “Afterglow,” which just dropped this year, and “Loud,” an older fan-favorite—Lynch gives his fans encouraging words as they lay out their own personal takes on some of his classics.
“I like it when people make songs their own,” Ross explains while watching the first cover at the top of the video.
“If you’re going to cover something, you might as well make it you,” he added, inspiring his fans to keep true to themselves and their own individual artistic styles, much like the artist himself is known to do.
Watch Ross react to these superfan covers (and them react to his feedback on their work) above—and prepare to become a superfan yourself.
