I’m so Fancy

Song: Fancy by Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX

Cover Artist: Madilyn Bailey

Mood: Acoustic

This little darling does a fantastic job covering this song. Based on her sweet look you would not expect such a strong and controlled voice, but she delivers that and more. I love that she made this song her own and it is such a fresh take on the original.

I recently became a fan of song covers. I think it’s wonderful when singers/musician put their own twist on another artists song. Some can even transform them into something new and exciting – like you’re listening to it again for the first time. That’s what this song does for me. So, well done Maddy!

This inspired me to add a new category to my posts called “Kick Ass Covers” – much like this one. If you like listening to different versions of songs then make sure you check them out!


Ed Sheeran & Christina Grimmie – All of the Stars

Song: All of the Stars by Ed Sheeran ft. Christina Grimmie

Genre: Alternative

Mood: Love, Acoustic

About the Music: I love Ed Sheeran; he is a very creative and talented artist that I admire. Here is a version of his song “All of the Stars” with Christina Grimmie that premiered on The Voice this year. The collaboration turned out beautifully. They brought a sense of realism through their voices of love and longing to be with someone you care about.

The original song is featured on the soundtrack for the movie “The Fault in Our Stars,” which is currently playing in theaters. The movie is based on the novel written by John Green, a story about two teen-age cancer patients who fall in love.

Aside from sharing this song, I also wanted to share that Ed Sheeran is currently on tour and will be coming through the west coast until the end of August. Click here for the tour dates and locations!
