Cover Star: Caleb Rekcah Redoes Brandy’s ‘Wildest Dreams’

Published: Saturday 30th Mar 2013 by Rashad

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star comes from Youtube beau Caleb Rekcah. Watch as he lays into an acoustic cover of Brandy‘s ‘Wildest Dreams’ – the second single from her critically acclaimed set ‘Two Eleven’:

We appreciate singers who can put their own twists on tunes without taking away from it.  Caleb did just that.  Softly cooing in the beginning of his cover (giving it a “lullaby” feel almost), the second verse saw him really ramp up and bring the song home.

While maintaining the vulnerability of tone the song calls for, Rekcah opted to avoid B-rocka’s rollercoaster (and oft inimitable) ride of runs and melisma, instead inserting his own blend.

Bravo sir.
