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.

Cover Star: A. Fox Covers Aaliyah’s ‘Enough Said’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is A. Fox. Watch as the songstress takes on Aaliyah‘s Drake-assisted tune ‘Enough Said’ below:

Given the buzz about forthcoming music from late R&B superstar Aaliyah, it should come as no surprise that this week’s cover would be related.

With a tone somewhat reminiscent of Aaliyah’s ever-praised falsetto, Fox definitely succeeds in her attempt to convey the same emotion the late songstress was going for in ‘Said’.  And it doesn’t hurt that Miss Fox also looked to dress the part as well.

Cover Star: Ebon Lurks Sings Chris Brown’s ‘Sweet Love’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Ebon Lurks. Watch as the young crooner take on Chris Brown‘s latest R&B hit ‘Sweet Love’ below:

Boasting a blend of Jason Mraz and Justin Bieber (vocally), Ebon puts an interesting pop twist on a very straightforward R&B cut.  And, while not decorating the cut with the embellishments (runs, riffs) that Brown generally treats his tunes to, Lurks’ acoustic arrangement still managed to not take away from ‘Love’.  Good showing!

Cover Star: Sarai Sings Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown’s ‘Right By My Side’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Sarai. Watch as the US native take on Nicki Minaj‘s latest hit ‘RightBy My Side (ft. Chris Brown)’ below:

As much as we love us some Nicki, Roman, and all else embedded in Onika, singing clearly isn’t her strongest card. Hence, to hear this melody driven cut performed by a wholly capable vocalist (who, most importantly, was able to render it her own / see: adblibs), was refreshing. Very.
