Ball's take on "Let's Stay Together" is truly something to behold. At times, the 26-year-old AGT: All-Stars legend brings the iconic song a refreshing, reserved tone. But at other points — especially that ending — Ball's soulful vocal chops lift the song to new heights. 

Ball has come a long way since his memorable debut on Britain's Got Talent Season 15. Many fans are in awe of his transformation over the years. However, one thing about Ball will never change: his out-of-this-world singing ability. Keep the covers coming, Tom!

"Let’s Stay Together" by Al Green lyrics

Let’s stay together

I, I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do is alright with me
'Cause you make me feel so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Let me say that since, baby, since we've been together
Ooh, loving you forever is what I need
Let me be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue

Ooh, baby, let's, let's stay together
Lovin' you whether
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad
Ooh, yeah
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why somebody, why people break up
Turn around and make up, I just can't see
You'd never do that to me, would you baby?
Just being around you is all I see, it's what I want to do

Let's, we ought to stay together
Lovin' you whether
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad
