One of the best parts of youtube is not viral videos like the evil chipmunk or chocolate rain, it’s the ability for people to create videos with the touch of a button.  The father daughter team of Jorge and Alexa Narvaez decided to cover one of Lightning 100’s Top Artists of 2010, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Fields.  Check out their version of “Home.”
