Video: Walk off the Earth – “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” ft. Selah Sue (Lauryn Hill Cover)

 

After having done a short string of west coast tour dates with Walk off the Earth, miss Selah Sue recently joined the group for the most recent bit in their cover series. “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Lauryn Hill is given a cutesy alt-pop treatment with Selah jumping in about midway adding some spice. Have fun bouncing around.

November Next Step Winner: Britney Stoney

 

Very excited to announce Detroit singer Britney Stoney as our November Next Step winner! Having learned guitar just two years ago, Britney has made quite the impression on her local circuit playing at coffee shops, clubs, and open mics. Citing Tracy Chapman, Dionne Farris, Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill as influences, her sound is primarily soul with alternative, folk, and pop leanings – you may even hear a tinge of reggae or country at times.

Above, we’ve got an awesome live performance video where Britney starts out with an Amy Winehouse cover of “Valerie.” After, she moves into an original piece where she shows welcome hints of Adele in her style. Below, hear another one of Britney’s tracks called “Three.” Heaps of potential with this young lady!
