Gareth Malone's Voices album - who are the original artists?
Keeping a pop sheen and a prominent electronic beat, this is one of the more faithful cover versions on this debut album from Gareth's new choir. The Alicia Keys original from 2009 was a chart and critical success, drawing comparisons to Prince. Malone's version gives it an almost gospel feel, with those massed choral vocals to the fore in the chorus.
