Best Cover Of 2022 (So Far) – Astonishing Voice SAM CASEY Shines On ETTA JAMES Classic

2 July 2022

SAM CASEY is a Toronto-based artist,
blessed with a astonishing voice.

Last May she shared her cover of the 1967 Etta James classic
I’d Rather Go Blind written by Ellington Jordan and co-credited
to Billy Foster and James.

Casey about her cover choice: “My producer, Joe Thompson, and I have always wanted
to cover Etta James’ tune, “I’d Rather Go Blind.” The way James speaks so directly about the struggle of losing someone is such a genuine act. At the time of recording this song and
video, I was going through a challenging time in my life. It feels so vulnerable to see the results of my raw emotion and struggle that this is almost difficult to watch. As soon as we started filming, the lyrics (and most likely, the fact that I was crying between takes) took everyone to this dark yet loving place where tears were being shed, but there were hugs and kisses floating around all night.”

Here’s her heart-and-soul touching version, sending shivers down your spine.
