Cover Star: Derran Day Does Drake’s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’

Published: Saturday 21st Sep 2013 by Rashad

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is singer/songwriter Derran Day. Watch as the Youtube crooner hits a homerun on Drake‘s latest top 10 hit ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’:

Is it us or does he sound like Craig David in parts?

Anywho, as much as we go for the “big voice” divas here at TGJ, we often tip our hats to simplicity.  Granted, we know ‘Home’ isn’t exactly the most challenging song to sing, so we’re sure that even Cassie the least experienced singers could handle it.

But, that doesn’t take away from Derran’s performance.  Clear, simple, and devoid of embellishment, Derran managed to capture the song’s emotion while still injecting a bit of himself in the tune.  Such ability is certainly what separates “covers” from “bad karaoke”.  To that, we say bravo Mr. Day!
