Black Velvet was originally released by Alannah Myles on her 1989 album Alannah Myles and as a single. It is a tribute to Elvis Presley, focusing on the effect he had on women. This is a great version, a little smoother than the original but still keeping the bluesy feel. The backing music, arranged by Alyona, has a stronger rock feel than the original but retains the strong beat that will having you tapping your foot. In the video Alyona works the camera perfectly and shows how to use a large microphone without having it block the face.
