Cover Star: Amen Kelly Sings Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’

After a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star returns this week and shines spotlight on the uniquely named songbird Amen Kelly.

The dedicated Rihanna fan (…) tackles one of the star’s biggest hits ‘Diamonds’. How does she fare? Hit ‘PLAY’ below to find out…

 

Impressive.

For all the justified critique levelled Rihanna’s way, it’s hard to deny that ‘Diamonds’ serves as one of her better performed songs. Hence, Amen’s rendition not only held its own in comparison to the original, it was rendered offered something new with the slower arrangement and fresh riffs and runs.

Cover Star: Korin Deanna Covers Whitney Houston’s ‘All The Man That I Need’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star comes from Youtube belter Korin Deanna. As we near the two year anniversary of the untimely passing of pop icon Whitney Houston, watch as the songstress tackles the legendary diva’s 1991 #1 hit ‘All The Man That I Need’

Bravisimo!

With power, passion, and poise, this cover gave us all that we needed (no pun intended)!  Admittedly a bit shaky in the beginning, Korin picked up as the song went on and delivered where it mattered most.  Nailing the dramatic tune’s climactic moments with relative ease, we appreciate Deanna’s ability to not get deterred from any mishaps along the way.

We are sure with time, polish, and ironing out of misfired melisma and the like, this Youtube songstress will shine amongst the best of them.  Already leagues above many of her Youtube contemporaries, if this video’s demonstration is just a hint of what she is capable of, we expect big things from her in the future.

Great work!

Cover Star: Fortunate Drop ‘Drunk In Love’ Cover [Must See!]

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is from Aussie male singing group Fortunate. Watch as the fab foursome knock Beyonce’s latest hit ‘Drunk In Love’ out of the park:

Intoxicating to say the least!  With flawless harmony on deck, the quartet took the bass driven Beyonce number and turned it into a sexy acoustic slow jam.  Steering clear of overdone melisma and opting out of inclusion on “team too much”, the fab foursome deliver what we think is the best cover yet of ‘Drunk In Love’.

For that we say bravo!

Cover Star: L.E.D. & G. Curtis Cover Lady Gaga’s ‘Do What U Want’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is L.E.D. and partner in crime G. Curtis, Jr. Watch as the Youtube duo do a cover of Lady Gaga‘s ‘Do What U Want’:

Excuse us while we regain our composure.

This, my friends, is how you do a cover.  What separates covers from karaoke is the singer’s ability to inject his or her personality into the tune without taking away from the original.  Unquestionably, such feat was accomplished by L.E.D. & co.

With jazzy vocals reminiscent of British beauty Duffy, this leading songstress is one we will definitely have our eye on in the future.

Cover Star: Claushelle Sings Beyonce’s ‘XO’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is singer/songwriter Claushelle. Watch as the Youtube belter hits a homerun on Beyonce’s newest fan favorite ‘XO’:

Cute, fun, and flirty, Claushelle’s cover of the Beyonce tune certainly checks every “descriptive box” related to the number. Definitely shining where it mattered most, the Youtube songstress injected a bit of her own flavor into the song.  A trait foreign to a number of cover artists who try to sing it like the original or try so hard to make it different, the tune gets lost in translation.

For that we say bravo!

Cover Star: Destinee Maree’s Moving ‘All The Way Home’ Cover (Tamar Braxton)

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is singer/songwriter Destinee Maree. Watch as the Youtube belter hits a homerun on Tamar Braxton’s latest hit ‘All The Way Home’:

Excuse us while we catch our breath!

Showing off a clear and sharp tone that saw her execute the song’s highlights with surprising ease, Destinee made this a must-replay!  What ever powers lie in that golden hairbrush should clearly be shared with some of her Youtube-contemporaries as they could learn a thing or two on control from Miss Maree.

Bravo!
