He’s one of music’s most renown male voices, she hails from one of music’s most celebrated groups, so who better than Michael Bolton and Kelly Rowland to tribute one of music’s most iconic eras.
The duo teamed up to cover Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s 1967 version of ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ for Bolton’s new Motown homage album - ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough: Tribute Hitsville’.
How do the pair fare? Find out below…
As covers go, this was stellar!
Bolton, as ever, serves up butter-smooth vocals, sounding like a Soulful solo choir when showcasing the length, breadth, and depth of his legendary voice. Similarly, Rowland pleases in a way we’ve been hoping she would for some time. For, as lovers vocal of riffs and runs, it was great to hear her not shying away from the power embedded in her own voice (or playing it down for radio play). Instead, she embrace it here - delivering a titillating blend of adlibs and belting that make us even more excited for her new album ‘Talk A Good Game’. More tracks vocally produced like this, please, Kelly.
