It's time to announce the winner of our most recent "Can YOU Sing? cover competition, this time to David Guetta's superb Without You - featuring Usher - and….
Sometimes less really is more!
Congratulations to Rachel Brown, our very talented winner, who proves that sometimes all you need is a guitar, a beautiful voice and an effective arrangement.
All one take! No pre-recorded vocals! No autotune! No distractions! Just simplicity, rawness and a haunting sweetness!
Sooo lovely! You MUST check out Rachel's cover (above)! We can't stop listening to it!
On the flip side, our runner-up Mike Squillante went ALL OUT for his entry - complete with comedy and acting too!
We could do without the first minute and forty seconds of "shtick" in this video, but when you get to Mike's actual take on Without You, it's really impressive!
He plays ALL those instruments! And his interpretation/re-working of the song is fierce! Check it out below! And…
Watch all of our wonderful honorable mentions…. after the jump! Watch all of our wonderful honorable mentions…. after the jump! Watch all of our wonderful honorable mentions…. after the jump! Watch all of our wonderful honorable mentions…. after the jump!
You MUST watch this! This is music at it's finest!
Meiko has been touring with Hanson and on a recent stop, she joined the boys at the end of the show for this incredible cover of two songs that you'd never EVER think either of these artists would cover!
Check out the video to hear their versions of Superfreak and You Can't Touch This! (above)
There are two things you are really going to like about this new ad for Chipotle:
First, the animation. Really cool. Very geometric. And, it really fit with the theme of the story being told. Impressive.
Second, the music. At first, you wouldn't think you'd like Willie Nelson singing Coldplay's iconic jam, The Scientist. But really, you can't argue that Willie's got a style all his own, one that really compliments songs when he puts his own twang into it.
Check out the video (above) to watch the video and hear Willie's work.
If you like the song, you can download in on iTunes and everything. The proceeds will benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation.
