Best Covers: Whitney Houston “I Will Always Love You”

Dolly Parton is a legend in her own right. And her original version, released in 1974, was no slouch—it topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart twice.

But we’re talking about one of the most epic vocal performances in the history of sound. Houston’s version was recorded for the 1992 film The Bodyguard, and went on to hold the record for the best-selling single by a woman in music history. And unofficially, that key change is one of the most reliably goosebump-inducing music moments to ever exist.

Natalie Prass, la gran nova veu

Un dels discos de l’any és culpa d’aquesta nord-americana de Richmond, Virginia i resident a Nashville. Co-produït i editat al segell del seu barbut amic Matthew E. White, ‘Natalie Prass’ (2015) és un clàssic modern ple de cançons de pop plenes de lletres sobre pors, desamors i inseguretats que Prass entona amb la seva delicada veu. Amb el primer tall, la punyent ‘My baby don’t understand me’ ja ho diu tot. Una barreja moderna de grans reines del pop com Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield o Dolly Parton. Natalie Prass serà aquest dimecres 26 d’agost a la sala Sidecar.
