It’s a brave soul that takes on a cover of a Sam Smith song.
They’re equal parts compassionate, emotional and vocally precise, requiring both immense precision and a lot of power.
Luckily, Jessie J has those qualities down.
The pop star is on the rise in America (not unlike Smith), but doesn’t forget where she came from. For this version, she took on an acoustic version of the song to sing along with, which benefited a noble cause: Global’s Make Some Noise radio charity, which helps disadvantaged children across the UK.
Here’s an older one version of the cover from earlier this summer:
And here’s the cover Jessie did for Make Some Noise via Popsugar.
