When people are good at what they do, they’re able to leave a legacy for decades, even after they’ve passed away. And one such person is Elvis Presley, or rather, the King of Rock n’ Roll! He sang songs that encouraged folks not only to sing along, but also evoked a soul awakening, emotional reaction within them. And for that reason, it’s no surprise that many bands, old and new, have recreated some of his classic tunes.
Today, you’ll have the sheer pleasure of hearing the band, Pentatonix, sing their version of the song, “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, which was sung by Elvis back in 1961. The tune gained platinum status almost instantly, selling over a million copies in the USA alone. So, what does that mean for any band or artist that plans to cover it? They’ve got to be ridiculously amazing at what they do!
Now of course you’re probably feeling a little apprehensive because, let’s face it, is any Elvis cover ever as good as the original? But this supergroup has really managed to create a sound that is mesmerizing, soothing and down-right amazing. Listening to it is an absolute treat.
The video begins peacefully with a black background, as the band members sit on chairs in circular formation. The camera slowly moves from singer to singer, as we catch a glimpse of their soulful voices and their passionate eyes. Then, each singer gets more time to shine, which is when you really get to feel the emotions they’re feeling.
Needless to say, this band has definitely managed to successfully cover an absolute classic in such a way that your heart will sincerely melt.
