Benjamin Clementine Covers Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child”
This Cover Version Will Give You Some Major “Feels”
Benjamin Clementine is a pianist and singer-poet who’s well-known for his charismatic stage presence, soulful vocals and the unique way he plays the piano. He is also a spinto tenor and would often play on stage with bare feet.
A warm graceful voice with a bright, full timbre that is strong but yet heavy that ranges from approximately the C one octave below middle C (C3) to the D one octave above middle C (D5). His lower range extends two octaves below middle C (C3).
With such amazing talent, he pays a touching and very beautiful tribute to a guitar great. This is probably one of the most powerful covers I’ve ever heard. It’s a wonderful tribute to a musical genius and Benjamin did a splendid job of putting his heart into the song. It gave me feel indescribably emotional!
“I am an expressionist; I sing what I say, I say what I feel and i feel what I play by honesty and none other but honesty. Some will get bored of me, but I invite the patient listener to come forth, feel and most importantly engage with me without asking too many questions. Hopefully by the end of listening they shall get answers not questionable, whether pleasing or not.”
He’s a one big explosion filled with so much expression!
