START YOUR WEEK WITH PRETTY MUCH THE BEST YOUTUBE VOCAL COVER WE’VE EVER HEARD THIS WEEK
Holy shit, where was this chick when Halford left Priest? I’m pretty certain that if the band had heard her, they would have been all, “‘Ripper’ who?”
Now, I know that if you’re an aspiring vocalist, you probably just heard this and went, “Oh, shit, I will never be as good as this girl. I’m just gonna quit.” But, really, you should look to her as an inspiration, not a deterrent. Because she didn’t get where she is today on raw talent alone; the video above is the result of lots and lots of practice and hard work. To wit:

Go here to see more videos by this incredible talent, including seven different versions of Van Halen’s “Jump” and at least two takes of “Hot for Teacher.”
