New Song: Kelly Rowland & Michael Bolton – ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’

kelly rowland michael bolton New Song: Kelly Rowland & Michael Bolton   Aint No Mountain High Enough

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.

    The thing is…

    People who slam Kelly’s talent negate the fact that she’s selected by great artists for collaborations quite often. Anyone with a good musical ear would recognize that the power, clarity and tone of Kelly is unrivaled by nearly every female singer out there.

    As much as I enjoyed this I can’t really get excited because this is not her song. It’s a SHAME that after Kelly said she was going back to Motown with her new album she’s done a Motown track for someone else’s project and recorded ringtones pertaining to frozen water and oral stimulation. Nobody can tell me tis lady has good career direction.

    Anyway, it’s good to hear her really singing. I just wish we could be reminded of that more than once a year.

    The cover is very good overall, his vocals sound like 20 years ago. But sorry Kelly Rowland doesn´t have a great voice. End of story. She can do nice, like she did here, but that´s about it

    I have always said he has a lot of soul. I don’t know Kelly but they are all that and a king size bag of chips.

    They took that song and made it their very own. Such an excellent performance and Ms Kelly, Ms.Thang has golden vocal cords. I have always loved Michael. I remember when he rocked it with Miss Patti and now he and Kelly Rowland.

    I have heard others do it. Nobody did it like Marvin & Tammi, but these two are as close to perfect as it gets. I’ll be buying that CD. WAY TO GO MICHAEL & KELLY.
