This week’s Fave Cover Friday is “Dear No One” by Tori Kelly. For those unfamiliar with Tori Kelly, a good description of her would be: sunshine manifested into an actual person. Tori began posting YouTube covers at the age of 14. Since then, she is now a signed artist with many original songs of her own. She is known for her outstanding range and ability to hit super high notes, example here. One of my favorite songs of hers is “Dear No One,” a rather slow, solemn song.
Originally, I actually had a different cover I wanted to share of this song, but as I was searching YouTube another artist caught my eye- a YouTuber by the name of Fatai. Her cover of “Dear No One” gave me chills. It was so different from the original and the tone in her voice was so soothing.
