Song: Ellie Goulding’s “Lights”
Why we’re obsessed: We’re seriously mesmerized by Madilyn and Jess’s radiating cover of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights.” It’s incredible how a piano and slower tempo can transform the song entirely.
Although their voices have quite a different range, they harmonize perfectly. Jess’ raspy quality brings out a certain edge to the song and backs Madilyn’s soprano perfectly. The cover has received more than 81,000 views in less than a week.
Background: Both girls have been singing and uploading various covers of Top 40 hits and some of their own material to their YouTube pages, along with collaborations with other YouTube stars. Jess seems to be heading more into the country music scene, since her first official music video was released on CMT, while Madilyn’s first EP is focused on pop/rock music.
