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!

Cover Star: Stevie Brock Rocks Bruno Mars ‘Gorilla’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Stevie Brock who gave an undeniably rocking version of ‘Gorilla’ by Bruno Mars.  Don’t believe us?  See for yourself:

Don’t hurt ‘em, Stevie!

If you closed your eyes in parts, you’d be convinced you were listening to Bruno himself.  An uncanny similarity to the Hawaiian hitmaker, Brock rocked this cover with passion and power – a clear cut above the karaoke crooners that flood Youtube.

We are keen to find out what’s next for Stevie!  With a voice like that, radio and listeners alike are done a great disservice if he remains absent from it.

Bravissimo!

Cover Star: Ashleigh Paylor Performs Ciara’s ‘Sorry’

It’s Ciara’s birthday weekend!  In honor of one of our favorites, this week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Ashleigh Paylor singing ‘Sorry’ from Ci’s latest critically acclaimed self-titled set.  Watch below:

As ‘Sorry’ continues to ring as one of our favorite numbers from Cici, we always love to hear a cover that does the tune justice.  And, Paylor did just that and then some!

Uncannily sounding just like the ‘Promise’ singer in parts, Paylor was able to capture the emotion and sincerity of the lyrics without drowning them out or attempting to overcompensate with with dramatics and theatrics (see:  excessive melisma, volume, etc).

To that, we say bravo!

Cover Star: Pentatonix Perform Regal Cover of Lorde’s ‘Royals’ (Must See!)

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is acapella group Pentatonix. Watch as the amazing group deliver an awesome, must see version of the #1 U.S. hit ‘Royals’ by newcomer Lorde:

Well, it’s pretty safe to say if you weren’t in love with this song before now, this version should have your ear bought and sold.  This cover simply drowns you in a glorious wave of intricate harmony – all the way down to the instrumentation.

Adding a level of energy to the tune that the original lacks, it’s also refreshing to hear a cover of the song that there is actual…umm…singing.  Go Pentatonix!
