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

Published: Saturday 7th May 2011 by Sam

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.

    I agree with the O. This site is British blog but you hardly post or promote British musicians.

    This was quite close to the original. She’s definitely the best I’ve seen since I’ve paid these kind of post any attention! I’m so impressed!

    Actually she is pretty good, she is in tune, hitting all the high notes, controlling the voice, mixing properly, good job!
