What song do you want Danielle Bradbery to cover? Let her know!
The country singer and former Voice winner is allowing fans the choice to pick which song they want to hear her cover.
Over the next few weeks, the country singer’s fans can call-in with the Vote on Pauwow App while tagging #DBREQUESTLINE on Facebook and Twitter. Bradbery will then rehearse the song and release the video on VEVO.
The most requested song for week one was A Great Big World‘s “Say Something.”
Directed by Ivan Clow, the nearly four-minute clip sees Bradbery sitting on a stool while her band surrounds her for the stripped down track.
Putting her own spin on the emotional ballad, it’s Bradbery’s voice at the forefront alongside acoustic guitar, pedal steel and piano.
The original version features Christina Aguilera and in an interview with Radio.com, A Great Big World admitted that they were taken back by how little she wanted to do with the song.
“We wanted her to take a verse and she didn’t want to do that,” Chad Vaccarino said. “She didn’t want to belt. She wanted to sing a harmony on it and let the song be.”
