Corinne Bailey Rae possess an angelic, soulful voice that can make just about anything she sings sound relaxing and soothing.
These two covers she did for that obscure radio show Live Lounge With Jo Whiley are proof to my statement.
Here she sweetened a Bjork song and a dark, anthemic rock track of Editors into summery, laidback, beautiful ballads. Just exquisite, the way she did it. I think we can expect so much more of this young lady in the future. If she can avoid the sophomore slump, that is.
