Chrisette Michele Knows You’re Real Good

R & B singer Chrisette Michele tackles No Doubt’s power ballad “Don’t Speak” in the above clip, and accompanied by only a piano, she does quite a bangup job on what she claims is one of her favorite songs ever. (I wonder if the Long Island native had a preset on her stereo locked in to WDRE back in the day?) Two minor complaints: one, maybe she should have avoided the key change in the bridge; and two, using the backdrops behind her to sync the original video to her singing is kinda silly, and it only serves to distract from her otherwise lovely effort.
