Cover Star: Shanice Sings Beyonce’s ‘Run The World (Girls)’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Shanice Smith. The young Londoner tracks a crack at Beyonce‘s new controversial single ‘Run The World (Girls)’.

Peep her performance below:

Great showing; once which further serves as evidence that it’s not always a powerful vocal which makes for an interesting voice. Rather, as Shanice show, it’s about interpreting the music and making it one’s own – something the BRIT school student does so here to great effect. .

Cover Star: Envy Starr Sings Mary J. Blige’s ‘Be Without You’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Envy Starr. The 22 year old, Los Angeles native serves up her own rendition of Mary J. Blige’s 2006 smash ‘Be Without You.

Check out the clip below:

Her over-reliance on the backing-track aside, Starr nailed it. Showcasing a competent and confident vocal, she serves as a reminder that it’s not all about having the best voice. Rather, how one is able to hone, control, and emote from it separates the bad from the good – this effortlessly falling into the latter. I like.

Cover Star: Lana Sings Kelly Rowland’s ‘Motivation’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Lana. The 24 year old, Houston, Texas native serves up her own rendition of Kelly Rowland‘s new Urban hit ‘Motivation’.

Check out the clip below:

Though the song doesn’t call for sheer vocal horsepower, it does demand great vocal control – which Lana displayed bountifully. Perhaps not as effortless as Kelly’s version, yet solid all the same.

Cover Star: Alexandria Sings Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Alexandria. The 16 year old, Maryland native serves up a spine-tingling rendition of Adele‘s smash ‘Someone Like You’. One most certainly beyond her humble years.

Check out the clip below:

Not only has the teen’s version left me speechless, her age has too. A voice like that at just 16?! It’s so reassuring to know that, in the midst of iTunes/digital era (see: mediocre artists), real, and raw talent is still on the come-up. Amazing performance.

Cover Star: Juliet Sings Jazmine Sullivan’s ‘Holding You Down’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Juliet Hudson. The London-based singer serves up a rousing redition of Jazmine Sullivan’s‘ Urban smash ‘Holding You Down’.

Check it out below:

Great performance. While lacking the grit and, perhaps, soulfulness that defines Sullivans voice, Hudson’s version -for us-is still a home-run. With her more Pop/Mainstream vocals, she delivered with this a fresh take on a solid song. Good stuff.

Cover Star: Miles Sings Britney’s ‘Hold It Against Me’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Miles Anthony. The Londoner turns in a unique redition of Britney Spears’ latest chart-topper – ‘Hold It Against Me’. Anthony weaves in another smash into the performance. See if you can spot it.

Check it out below:

Loved it! Great re-working of a solid song; one Miles’ soulful, yet Pop friendly vocals made  seem like an effortless task. More than anything, this really underscores the fact that UK boasts much in raw Urban talent; here’s hoping this year sees more labels recognise that.

Cover Star: Brian Sings Whitney Houston’s ‘I Look To You’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is Brian Davis. The Seattle resident serves up a sound redition of Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Look To You’.

Check it out below:

Great performance! Powerful, emotive, and controlled, Brian importantly made the song his own – opting not to simply rehash the adlibs and isms present on the song or in Whitney’s live renditions of it. Instead he garnished the track with his own runs and such, resulting in a really refreshing take on solid song. {Hits ‘play’ again}

Check it out Vice’s stripped-back version below:

Though at times sounding somewhat ‘karaoke’ (J’s distinctive adlibs are becoming somewhat her trademark), Megan certainly held her own; delivering, with this performance, a great take, on an awesome song. Good stuff.
