Patti Smith has done it, as have Childish Gambino and Jamie XX and probably also everyone else you know with a YouTube account. And now we have Celine Dion, legendary chanteuse, adding to the cannon and giving Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep” a go of her own. Obviously, she kills it.
Powerful and sultry, Dion’s cover is at once faithful to the Grammy-sweeping original and worthy of its place in Dion’s hugely successful Vegas show. According to the Las Vegas Sun, the cover takes the place of that the Michael Jackson medley she did in runs past. It may also show up on her upcoming album, Water and Flame, which will include covers, some new material, and a duet with Ne-Yo.
“I love Adele so much. She’s amazing,” Celine professed to the approving Sin City crowd. So do we, Celine. So do we.
