Cover Star: Travis Garland Lends His Talents To ‘Let Me Love You’ (Ne-Yo)

This week’s That Grape Juice ‘Cover Star‘ comes from the R&B/pop stylings of Youtube sensation Travis Garland. Watch as the Texas talent takes on the task of Ne-Yo‘s top 10 smash ‘Let Me Love You’ below:

Garland was nothing short of great!  With vocals uncannily reminiscent of Ne-Yo (and Justin Timberlake in parts), Garland lends a performance that could easily run side by side with some of today’s top crooners.

It’s refreshing gifts like his that gives us some hope that real talent will one day make its return to radio.  Because, without doubt, this kid has it.

Cover Star: Tion Phipps Performs Alicia Keys’ ‘Brand New Me’

This week’s That Grape Juice ‘Cover Star‘ comes from up-and-coming crooner Tion Phipps. Watch as the US native puts a brand new spin on ‘Brand New Me’ – the latest single from Alicia Keys’ hotly selling 5th LP ‘Girl On Fire’:

Kudos to Tion for his try at the emotional number.  Showcasing a tonal quality similar to that of singers Lloyd and Justin Bieber, the 18-year-old was able to capture the sincerity of Alicia’s vocal performance while still putting his own spin on it.

We definitely give this one two thumbs up!

Cover Star: Jonnathan Molina Covers Christina Aguilera’s ‘Just A Fool’

This week’s That Grape Juice ‘Cover Star‘ comes from Youtube crooner Jonnathan Molina. Watch as the US native does double duty on Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton‘s hot duet ‘Just A Fool’ below:

Coming in as That Grape Juice‘s last ‘Cover Star’ of 2012, Molina certainly sends us into the new year with a bang.  Covering any Christina Aguilera song is definitely a task, but the crooner put his own spin on the number – inserting his powerful vocals in just the right places without overdoing it.

Yes, the “shouty” parts of the song would certainly put a strain on any voice (let alone a male voice), but Molina definitely held his own.  Overall, a good showing.

Cover Star: Shekia Renea Sings Tamar Braxton’s ‘Love & War’

This week’s That Grape Juice ‘Cover Star‘ comes from soulful Youtube fashionista Shekia Renea. Watch as the US native takes on the task of Tamar Braxton‘s soaring new single ‘Love & War’ below (begins @ :15):

Sweet!  The multi-talented Renea certainly put her stamp on the Braxton number.  Showcasing a supple alto (more vocally reminiscent of Tamar’s eldest sibling Toni), Renea was able to capture the emotion of the song while still able to inject her own style into the R&B ballad.  All in all, great work!

Cover Star: SChAE Sings ‘Girl On Fire’ (Alicia Keys)

This week’s That Grape Juice ‘Cover Star‘ comes from Youtube trio SChAE (Sisters Christine Angel & Ella). Watch as the US natives sizzle on a stripped down version of Alicia Keys’ latest hit ‘Girl On Fire’ below:

Sing Sang girls!!  Indeed, to say that SChAE sang that would almost be an understatement to what the brought to the tune.  Rolling across the song’s more challenging parts with ease, the trio (especially the lead songstress) certainly presented some voices to be reckoned with.  Accompanied by flawless harmony, it’s safe to say that these girls truly are on fire!

Cover Star: Karlos Farrar Sings Jojo’s ‘Demonstrate’

This week’s That Grape Juice ‘Cover Starcomes from soulful crooner Karlos Farrar. Watch as the US native takes on the falsetto and melismatic challenges of Jojo‘s latest single ‘Demonstrate’ below:

Kudos to Karlos!  The crooner kept it cool without depriving the songs of the bells and whistles that make it great.  Where so many people overdo it is in their interpretation of the original singer’s runs/riffs, but Farrar didn’t go too far.  Still managing to make the song his all the while…

Cover Star: Koreen Clay Sings Christina Aguilera’s ‘Your Body’

After a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star is back! This week spotlight’s French native Koreen Clay, who tackles Christina Aguilera‘s latest hit ‘Your Body’. How did she fare? Find out below…

Near-flawless!

Clay’s range, control, and delivery were impeccable. Christina may be the vocal blueprint for this generation , yet few are legitimately able to hold their own with one of her most vocally demanding cuts. This young madame is among the few. Great performance.

Cover Star: Sarai Sings Kelly Rowland’s ‘Ice’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is soulful songbird Sarai. Watch as the US native take on Kelly Rowland‘s latest single ‘Ice’ below:

Yes, yes, yes! Sarai smashed this.

A tricky song to sing (see: low register for verses, higher for chorus), not only did she “handle” it well, she mixed and moulded it into something of her own. Those adlibs were off the Richter! Great performance.
