Sometimes you have to wonder why anyone would attempt to cover certain songs. Not everyone can pull off a Whitney Houston, or an Adele, or a Freddie Mercury, after all.
Of course, a true artist will want to take a song and make it their own. Sometimes it works and we're blown away as an audience. Sometimes it falls flat.
Having already tackled Adele, José Rivera Jr. is now hoping his cover of Queen’s “Somebody to Love” will win over more fans. He even created an interesting, pro-queer video to go with it.
“Every day came another story about the Drumpf Administration being anti-LGBT—and I thought, ‘Wow, they are really trying to erase us,’” Rivera Jr. explained. “But instead of getting angry, I decided to use the amazing lyrics of this song to say, ‘I’m not going anywhere. You can’t erase me when all I want is love. All we do as a community is love. And none of us are going anywhere because of your petty intolerance and hate.’”
