Cover Star: Random Wright Rocks ‘Roar’ By Katy Perry

Published: Saturday 17th Aug 2013 by Rashad

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star sails in from South Floridian crooner Random Wright.  Press ‘PLAY’ below to see Random take on Katy Perry‘s latest smash hit ‘Roar’ – the first release from her forthcoming album ‘Prism’ (October 22).

Alright then Mr. Wright.

Some of you may remember Random from his casting on MTV’s ‘Making the Band 4’, but for those of you who don’t, the video above provides just a glimpse of his ability.  Taking a lighthearted approach to Perry’s thunderous empowerment anthem, Wright was sure not to take away from the intensity of the song when it mattered most (i.e. the chorus).

Quite reminiscent of Jason Mraz in his approach to this tune, the simplicity of Random’s performance may seem just that when compared to the original. But, after just a few seconds of listening you quickly see that somehow, someway it just works.
