Welcome to Showdown, where we have a little friendly comparison of artists that cover/remix the same songs and then vote for the one we think pulled it off better.
Bruno Mars has been something of a guaranteed hit-maker, and his newest single “It Will Rain” from the upcoming Twilight movie doesn’t seem to be any different. Which probably explains why so many artists are covering it. In fact we have a four-way battle this time around, in an event some are proclaiming as three guys, a girl, and a Bruno song. OK, no one calls it that but bare with me. Jason Chen, Dawen, Joseph Vincent, and Cilla Chan all decided to tackle the song, but only one can win the showdown and walk away with 1,000,000 a-Tunes points… which are completely worthless, by the way.
All four artists have a sizeable presence/following on Youtube, some big than others but their executions of the song are all similar so it comes down to the details for this one. After a close listen do you favor Jason’s poppy vocals? How about Dawen’s unique phrasing? JV’s clean and cool singing style? Or does Cilla’s touch of soulful runs? Cast your vote now!
