Cover Star: Vini Del Rio Belts Mariah Carey’s ‘We Belong Together’

Cover Star is back!

This week we shine the spotlight on Brazilian belter Vini Del Rio, who soars with Mariah Carey‘s modern classic ‘We Belong Together.’

A vocal benchmark for the most gifted of singers, how did Vivi fare? Find out below…

Vini did that!

In taking down the key of the track, he effortlessly made it his own. No small feat for a song so synonymous with one of the great female voices of all time.

The acoustic arrangement was a great touch too; so much so that we’d love to hear Mimi tackle the track in the same stripped-down capacity.

All in all, an awesome offering.

For more on Vini, check out his YouTube channel here.

A a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star is back!

Despite its odd chart run, the cut remains one of the most-praised on the star’s ‘ANTI’ album.

How did Mikayla fare? Find out below…

Boasting a sweet tone and ample vocal control, Mikayla delivered with her delicious rendition.

Hers is a voice that is altogether lighter than the original, which helped put a fresh spin on the track. She also used it skilfully to showcase the different shades of her varied vocal palette.

Great performance.

Cover Star: Louka’s Must See Performance Of Lady Gaga’s ‘Do What U Want’

Following a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star is back.

Today’s spotlight is shined on New York resident Louka Madison, who raises the roof with a rousing rendition of  Lady Gaga’s 2013 hit ‘Do What U Want.’ 

Watch and be wowed below..

Bella! Bravo! Bellissimo!

Louka rocked that, showing great range, power, and – above all – control. She skilfully navigated her way through the song (which isn’t the easiest to sing), managing to be vocally engaging throughout and lacing her offering with unique riffs and runs post climax. Mother Monster would be proud.

Cover Star: Desi Covers Ciara’s ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’

After a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star returns this week.

Today’s effort comes via Desi, who delivers his own take on Ciara‘s new hit ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love.’ 

How did he fare? Find out below…

Though pitchy at points, this was solid.

Beyond being blazing, one of the reasons we’re so enamoured with the song is how well-paired it is with Ci’s sweet tone. That said, Desi’s rendition highlights that the track also works well with a male vocal.

Again, solid.

Cover Star: Brick City Belt Janet Jackson Jam ‘No Sleeep’

After a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star returns this week with British outfit Brick City, who tackle Janet Jackson‘s seductive comeback cut ‘No Sleeep’

How did they fare? Hit ‘PLAY’ below to find out [cover commences at 0.48 mark]

While it was telling at points that the group had – per their own admission – just learnt the track, they still turned in a commendable rendition.

Their harmony driven delivery served up a fresh take on the simply sung song and actually has us salivating at the prospect of Janet garnishing with similar sounding adlibs when performing it live.

Kudos!

Cover Star: Tia Tackles Rihanna’s ‘FourFiveSeconds’

After a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star returns this week with Youtube songstress Tia tagging some friends to do their thing to Rihanna’s latest top 5 hit ‘FourFiveSeconds.’

How do they fare? Hit ‘PLAY’ below to find out…

Nice!

We appreciate Tia for staying true to the tone of the song not feeling the need to flex her vocal muscle with an overabundance of melisma or other eccentricities, but we give kudos for making the song her own with the help of her friends.

Simple, smooth, effective, and to the point.  We like and am sure Ri would give a thumbs up too!
