Every now and then—more like every 12 seconds—there's a video that suddenly clicks with the universe and racks up an untold number of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter shares, views and comments.

Below, we present one such video. It's a homemade clip of guitarist Bulgarian Eva Vergilova performing an instrumental version of Prince's "Purple Rain."

While we don't know much about Vergilova, we know her YouTube channel features several covers and playthrough videos, including tunes by Jimi Hendrix and Scorpions (See her cover of Scorpions' "Sails of Charon" in the bottom video below).

For all about Eva, follow her on Facebook and YouTube.
