Bobby Plays 'Pirates' on Piano


We know you all have enjoyed getting to know Bobby Smith, Tori Bates' husband-to-be, but there is one fact that you might not know about him. He is a beast on the piano! Check out this video of his cover of the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song. You're sure to be blown away.

  1. He is a beautiful pianist! But, Pirates of the Caribbean is most definitely not within the realms of their professed modesty standards. In true sincerity ( no snarkiness) I would love it if the Bates would do an interview explaining their ever widening ( or loosening) rules. Just to be fair I’m all for it. I think they demonstrate a more mature Christian Faith as they walk in love with “the world” versus judgement and “we never” haughtiness. And, could Bobby play Once Upon a Dream please? That’s my favoritešŸ˜ƒ

    1. Bobby isn’t a Bates, so he may not share their same exact rules. You don’t have to have watched the movies to have heard the song. He does an amazing job playing it.

    2. Why the undertones of criticism @12:14? The OP was nothing but complimentary of Bobby and the Bates. Truthfully, I would like to know also? Do they watch Disney movies including Pirates? It would be a bit odd to seek out music from a known movie genre if you are opposed to watching or participating in their theme parks.

    3. There weren't any undertones of critcism from 12:14. She or he was stating that Bobby isn't a Bates and basically he didn't have the same upbringing as Tori.

    4. Bobby wasn’t raised in the same standards Tori was.. For example he didn’t understand how courtship worked and said he was only doing it because he knew it was important to her and her family (I think Evan is in the same boat). Throughout his appearances on the show he’s talked a lot about their different upbringings (he also only has two siblings). Definitely wouldn’t surprise me if he’s watched mainstream movies lol

    5. 7:58. Thank you for the clarification. It does make me a bit sad then if Bobby works at the Church Gil has started as they are ATI/IBLP’s.

  11. Bobby also played piano on the one episode where Ashley (Nathan's former girlfriend) sang. It was a beautiful duet. We knew Bobby was talented then.

  12. Yes! I would have been disappointed if it wasn’t Jarrod Radnich’s arrangement. My brother did this a couple years ago. Bobby did it beautifully!

  17. I thought the same thing about Pirates of the Caribbean being not allowed for them to see. I also would very much like for the family, married ones also,, SEPARATELY stating what THEIR beliefs and rules are in the world now.

  18. Omgoodness.. if they'd state a specific reason why they don't watch mainstream movies. We'd prob all cry lol. We love the bates, they seem pretty normal to us, and fun.
