A trend that has been growing for a number of years now is the contemporary song cover on you tube. I think it’s a lot of fun to scour the video responses or search results to find the gems (and also some of the not gems… those will have a special place on GFM soon but I digress…) this cover by Antonique Smith is definitely a gem and we are looking forward to bringing you more great contemporary covers like this to the series.
