Time for some comedy.

 

Maestro Ziikos is a musician and video editor from Morocco. He is best known for his series of videos where he takes audio, and video, recordings of famous people, heavily edits them and makes them sing popular songs, which he then uploads to his YouTube channel, and he has been doing this since 2008.

 

Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) was originally released by Beyoncé on her 2008 album I Am… Sasha Fierce and as a single. It is set after a break up where the singer is telling an ex-lover that she is out on the town and has someone else new and he has no right to be upset because if he had the chance to make it permanent but didn’t. For this version Maestro Ziikos has taken clips of Donald Trump and combined them so that Trump sings the song which gains it’s humour from expressing a different view of women than Trump usually expresses with his real speech.

Avonlea is a young singer, songwriter, musician, actress and activist from California, USA. She started writing songs at age 10, just after she reluctantly allowed her parents to keep a piano in her room. She started her recording career in 2014 with her self-titled album.

 

Stranger was originally as a video on YouTube at the  end of October, 2017. It is about someone who has run away from a relationship but still isn’t happy. It is a beautiful, mesmerising track with a simple arrangement of just voice and bass ukulele. Avonlea paints a bleak picture that we can easily picture in our minds and makes us feel the loneliness of the song’s central character. It’s not a pleasant story but you will be held enthralled by this masterful performance.

 

WARNING: This song contains word that are not usually considered suitable for children.

Erin Bolland is a young singer and musician from the United Kingdom. She started singing at the age of 8 years and made her first recording at 11. Apart from music she has also represented her native Scotland at netball.

 

All Through The Night was originally released by Jules Shear on his 1983 album Watch Dog but the version that was released by Cyndi Lauper the following year on her album She’s So Unusual and as a single is better known. It is a love song about just being together, knowing how each other feel without having to say a word, enjoying each other’s company and not sleeping. This is Erin‘s own unique version of the song that has aspects of both version but is a copy of neither. Erin presents the melody with greater beauty than either of the previous versions and expresses the emotions perfectly so that you can feel the comfort and the love that is expressed in the song.

Ganavya Doraiswamy is an Indian singer, dancer, and musician. She started her performing Karnatik music from her native South India and has studied Theatre, Psychology, Contemporary Performance, and Ethnomusicology. She is now best known for translating Jazz standards into her native Tamil language and reinterpreting Indian songs.

 

Nithākam is a translation in to Tamil of the George Gershwin classic Summertime from the 1935 Jazz opera Porgy and Bess and was originally recorded by Abbie Mitchell in 1935 and was first a hit for Billie Holiday in 1936 and has been recorded more than 25,000 times. It is a lullaby that describes life as being easy and that the baby is privileged. This is an incredibly moving performance from Ganavya. The song is instantly recognisable, even with the lyrics being in Tamil, with a fusion of Jazz and Indian elements with European folk traditions gives this version an original feel, as though it stretches back to the start of time, that remains even after Ganavya switches to singing in English. You will be transfixed by the sound and the simple video from the first note until after the final note has faded away, and you will need the silence at the end of the video to return to the mundane world. Ganavya is joined on this version by Albert Sanz on piano and Pablo Martín Caminero on double bass, and is dedicated to her friend Prashant Bhargava who died in 2015. This song will be included on Ganavya‘s debut album Aikyam: Onnu, and you can pre-order a copy by backing the Kickstarter project to fund the release here.

You can follow Ganavya on her Official Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, on Soundcloud, and on her YouTube channel. You can support the production of her debut album Aikyam: Onnu on Kickstarter.

Kylie Meilak is a young Maltese singer. She is a former student of  Gillian Attard at La Voix Academy in Malta and is now studying with Maria Abdilla. She has competed in several local and international singing competitions, including the Malta Independence Festival and coming 2nd in her category at the San Remo Junior festival in 2014, where she represented Malta.

 

The Power of Love was originally released by Jennifer Rush on her 1984 album Jennifer Rush and as a single, though the version by Celine Dion is now better known. It is a love song where the singer is always with their lover, even when apart, and can handle anything because of the power of love. Kylie gives a mature, powerful version of the song that doesn’t fall into the trap of being overly sentimental but instead conveys emotion with a confidence that would accompany the type of love that the lyrics describe. For this video Kylie is backed by the Spiteri Lucas Band on the Maltese TV show The Entertainers that originally went to air towards the end of last year.

You can follow Kylie on her Website, on Facebook, and on her father's YouTube.
