Dee Mayekane performed ‘Rolling In The Deep’ by Adele.
Did you know that ‘Respect’, one of Aretha Franklin’s signature songs, is a cover? Well, it is – Otis Redding first recorded it two years before she did in 1967. ‘Rolling In The Deep’, which became Aretha’s last single before her death in 2018, is a cover version too. Written by Adele and producer Paul Epworth, it was the lead single and first track on her sophomore album, ‘21’, and it got her a first American number one in 2010. As of 2018, having sold over 20 million copies in the US, it’s the best-selling song ever by a female performer. She describes the track as “a dark blues-y gospel tune” and we can’t wait to hear what Dee does with it.
Dee poured her heart and soul into every word with a stunning take on Adele’s break out smash and we can’t stop listening on repeat.
Such sincerity, Power and connection to the emotion of the song from Dee who knocked Adele’s, ‘Rolling In The Deep’ out of the park.
