Can YOU Sing??? These Folks Can!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJason MrazCan YOU Sing???

One of our favorite things we do all month is view all the submissions for our "Can YOU Sing?" cover competition!

And this month was especially pleasurable because we chose Jason Mraz's new single, I Won't Give Up, and that song is so exquisite! We can't get enough!

And we also can't stop listening to The Lorentzen's cover! They are the very worthy winners!!! Our favorite entry - by far!

Check out their Lady Antebellum meets church take on the song (above)! SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!

Second place goes to Anna Palmerola! Her version is very lovely AND she did something no one has ever done in our "Can YOU Sing?" cover competition before!

Anna made the song her own with not just her beautiful arrangement, but she also flipped the song and turned into on a Spanglish tune by adding her own lyrics in Spanish! So smart! So effective!

Check out Anna's version of I Won't Give Up below. And….

    Those are decent covers, but I prefer the Cimorelli girl's cover WAY better. That cover was AMAZING! Plus they did a little mash-up with Miley's single "When I look At You", which blended really well.

    I'd buy the Lorentzen's version today, just as it is. GORGEOUS voices. Lovely. I like that they are focused on their voices and how they blend together. The 2nd video (Anna) seems too Hollywood. All the posing and hair-stroking and costume-changing is distracting.

    THIS is what you should use your site for. Screw Simon Cowell and his stupid show. Once the PR reps and stylists get a hold of these singers, their souls change forever. A good voice doesn't need to writhe on a park bench. Perez, you could be the opposite of American Idol and X Factor.

    Re: LaughingOutLoud1

    I agree. Perez, instead of having dumb blogs about kids and fashion; why not do a blog about music. One where you have contests like this where you can showcase new and undiscovered talent. Personally, I would read that. I love going on youtube to watch people cover songs.

    These were good, but my all time favourite cover is the one by the Crowley brothers. I cannot stop listening to it, and the brothers are also adorable ! In my opinion, had they entered their version, they would have won. I agree with the other posters Perez, you should definitely do this this contest more often!!!!
