That's a great point, and I think that's one of the things I love most about that video (besides the fact that I enjoy her voice).

I think a lot of people underestimate what goes into a truly great cover; which, I feel, is very much about that fine balance of simply interpreting the song. Being, at once, both authentically oneself and also equally true to the piece. As opposed to "re-making" or "re-interpreting." Or, alternatively, trying to sound like someone else.
