Crunchy harmonies, luscious chords and gorgeous a cappella singing: this is Miley Cyrus’s smash hit as you’ve never heard it before. And there's just one day left to see it…

At the 2014 iTunes Festival, superstar choral conductor Eric Whitacre not only performed the choral music he's best known for but also treated the crowd to… some Miley Cyrus.

And here's the exclusive video of Eric conducting his cover of 'Wrecking Ball' – with singer Marius Beck (whose cover of 'Wrecking Ball' inspired Eric's version) – and melting everyone in that audience.

This video is no longer available – but why not explore more of our article about Eric Whitacre and his beautiful choral music?

The song will be on Eric's new album – Eric Whitacre Live at iTunes Festival 2014 – which is out later this month.
