As we're gearing up for our big SXSW party this weekend, we happily took a couple of hours out to go through each submission in our latest "Can YOU Sing" cover competition!
We are LOVING that bands, duos and producers are now entering - as well as solo artist. And we really really really love the many different ways each artist made Katy Perry's new single, Part Of Me, their own.
If Gotye covered Part Of Me, we'd imagine it was a bit like this!
Listen to it below AND….
Check out all the honorable mentions… after the jump!!!
Congrats to Michaela Kaser for her torch song reinterpretation of Part Of Me. Vocally she remind us of Robyn - and that's a great thing! Check it out (below)!
Smooth!!!! Michael Minelli delivered a sultry R&B version of the song! Check out the seksiness below!
Moody!!! Lindsa Harrison gave us Fiona Apple meets Kate Bush with her take on the song! Check it out below!!
Props to Jeremy Thurber, who will make the ladies swoon with his cover! Check it out (below)! Work that falsetto!
And, last, but certainly not least is… Cape Cadets, who bring an Ed Sheeran vibe to the tune! Love the original lyrics! Love the unexpectedness throughout, like adding the female vocalist! Very very lovely! Check it out below!
On Saturday, Leolah Brown, the sister of Bobby Brown, caused a scene when she started screaming at Pat Houston. LB allegedly yelled:
"Pat you know you are wrong for this!"
Talk about classless! Thankfully Tyler Perry was there to calm everyone down.
Outside of the church, LB added:
"It's not over. We've got evidence of who Pat really is, this is going to be a long drawn out process. Things are connected. Pat is a fraud and a phony. She is not a Houston, she's a Garland. She will be remembered in our hearts forever. It's so sad that this has happened to her. I'm angry at Nick, I am angry at what happened. It was all fine until Pat started speaking."
According to insiders, Brown believes Pat has ulterior motives where it concerns Bobbi's inheritance and they've been feuding ever since the 22-year-old became comatose. It's just a sad situation all around.
We hope the rest of the services go smoothly -- anything else would be a disservice to BK's memory!
