‘AGT’ Golden Buzzer Singer Sara James Covers Billie Eilish, Releases New Version of “My Wave”
America’s Got Talent standout Sara James has made her way to Spotify’s studio to re-record one of her original songs. Spicing up this collaboration even more, the Polish singer also covered her favorite Billie Eilish track.
Sara James Drops Two Spotify Singles
The 14-year-old songstress didn’t waste the opportunity to put a different spin to the music she genuinely fancies. Just recently, James revealed that she recorded another version of her top track, “My Wave.”
“I chose ‘My Wave’ because I think that I really want to show the new version of the song,” she said.
With “My Wave” being her favorite among the rest of her music collection, James desired to vibe with the song more freely. Indeed, Spotify Singles allowed her to plunge in her own artistic process. Recently she completed her newest release, a rehash of Billie Eilish’s “Lovely.” James tacked on her unique vocals to make this rendition insanely beautiful. Aside from Beyonce and Rihanna, Billie Eilish is one of James’ musical inspirations.
For those who may not know, the Polish teenager sang “Lovely” in her audition on season 17 of America’s Got Talent. With that stunning performance, she won over Simon Cowell, receiving a golden buzzer which sent her straight to the live shows.
She Showed Musical Maturity in New Release
In comparison to the original version of “My Wave,” the re-recorded version showed a more creative Sara James. It appears that the songstress has become more playful with her voice. Even so, she didn’t lose her soulful tone to it.
In addition, James’ “Lovely” cover consists of an entirely different take. The musical arrangement is slightly different from the previous one, but it’s not something to complain about. Admittedly, nothing would replace the original version, but James has given justice to the song with her clean voice.
“My Wave” and “Lovely” are now available for streaming in Spotify. Subsequently, James continues to work with Spotify as the youngest-ever ambassador for its EQUAL program.
