For my first cover song, I thought I’d take you to church. This is a super soulful rendition of John Mayer’s “Gravity” covered by season 14 American Idol finalist Clark Beckham and one of the most striking vocalist I’ve heard in a long time, YEBBA aka Abbey Smith.
In this song, written by everyone’s favorite ex-boyfriend, Clark and YEBBA harmonize like fresh bread and warm honey butter.
Clark certainly holds his own but it’s YEBBA who really brings it to the next level. She has such killer pipes that breathe new life into an otherwise pretty depressing song.
I think we will hear a lot more from her in the future. In February this year, I spotted YEBBA and her buddies, Thirdstory (more on them later) singing backup for Chance the Rapper’s “Same Drugs” on SNL. She totally brought down the house.
So first, listen to this cover, repent and then check out that SNL performance before SNL takes it down because they stink. Ciao!
