Something’s Got a Hold On Me was originally recorded by Etta James for her 1962 album, Etta James, and was also released as a single. It is a song about being in love for the first time. Daneliya gives a great fun, high energy performance of the song which, with the slightly overdriven gain on the vocals, adds an early rock feel to the gospel soul tones of the song. When you add the great expressions that Daneliya wears on her face, especially the final one, you get a thoroughly enjoyable rendition of a classic song the is extremely entertaining. This video is Daneliya‘s entry in the online creative competition Utrennyaya Zvezda Yuriya Nikolaeva (Morning Star Yuri Nikolayev) in the vocal section for 7 to 11 year olds. You can find out more about the competition here (in Russian).
