[SONG] Alexandra Burke x ‘Live And Let Die’

alexandraburke

When it comes to the extremely overused Beyonce’ comparisons, there’s only one singer alive today that rightfully fits the title accurately. Coined the “British Beyonce” by respected X-Factor UK judges Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell, UK soul singer Alexandra Burke delivers yet another bone-chilling cover of a pop/rock classic. Known for becoming the most successful winner of the UK singing competition franchise (over Leona Lewis), Burke is known for her groundbreaking, multi-platinum covers of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Mariah Carey’s “Without You”. While her original material fails to make her stand out from her U.S. counterpart, her most recent cover of Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Die” (from the 1973 James Bond film of the same name) shows just where her nickname came from. Alexandra’s husky vocals are #pitchperfect on any song, but her penchant for making covers her own is a standout vocal quality, unmatched by any singer today. If only her own material moved me as much as her covers, Alexandra may just be able to surpass American vocal heavyweights such as Beyonce’ or Adele as the premier vocalist of our generation. Listen and download Alexandra’s cover of “Live And Let Die” below.
