Michael Bolton has never sounded quite like this. This chills-inducing cover is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates the original or has an ear for acapella performances.
The classic 1991 love song by superstar Michael Bolton is still often used as a wedding song today. ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’ is one of the most heartfelt ballads for many people.
That’s why this cover comes as a complete surprise. First, the song is difficult to cover. The high notes, belting, and more make it impossible to get right. That doesn’t seem to be a problem for the band Home Free.
In addition to covering this vocally impressive song, they’re also doing it completely sans instruments. This acapella band is full of so much talent, and yet they all are content to do background vocals and let Austin Brown take the lead.
It’s a smart choice. His vocals are created of smooth, natural talent, and surely Michael Bolton would be thrilled to hear such a beautiful cover of his original song. There’s no flaw in any part of this cover.
Between the vocals, the background tones that mimic the music, and the looks that Austin gives the camera as he performs, this cover is amazing. It’s guaranteed to give you chills!
