Online singer’s Shania Twain cover brings new spirit to the original

February 15th, 2021

We’ve all heard the saying “love conquers all.”

It’s a famous line that may sound cliché, but that plenty of people still relate to.

Most of us have read or have known some of the most famous fairy tales where a man and a woman fall in love and they live happily ever after.

Even so, love stories in real life can be more complicated.

Most of the time, these stories lead to a series of heartaches and tragic endings.

What is more hurtful is the fact that these people don’t get to live happily ever after not because their love isn’t enough or they didn’t exert much effort into the relationship for it to work out, but because of the odds that make it seemingly impossible to have faith in a happy ending.

For instance, have you ever felt like everyone and everything is against you and your love story?

Have you ever cried helplessly, knowing that no matter how much you love each other, it will never work out? Have you ever convinced yourself against the fact that no matter hard you both try, reality will be there to shatter your dreams every attempt you make?

Sometimes the people around you judge your relationship, doubt your intentions and sincerity and declare that your love won’t last.

These are all things that encouraged Shania Twain to pen “You’re Still The One” in collaboration with her former husband Robert Lange. And decades after, this budding singer from America does her own amazing acoustic cover of it.

This 23-year-old singer and songwriter made people swoon as she sang her rendition of the Grammy award-winning song “You’re Still The One.”

In a video uploaded via her YouTube account, Dakota performs an acoustic version with her guitar that is designed to look like an avocado.

This version made her singing skills stand out. You can clearly hear the raspiness in her voice, but it’s still laced with sweetness like biscuits and honey.

When she sings the first lyrics of the song, you’re sure to get goosebumps!

She really sounds like the original singer Shania Twain with a bit of Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift here and there. Though her tempo is faster than the original version, the way she modulates her voice, her singing style and her vocal tone are similar to Twain’s.

Dakota sounds dreamy, with her gray eyes piercing into your soul, uttering each lyric with so much clarity and passion.

The way she delivered the song has so much bliss in it—just like lovers who triumphed against all odds.

The way she smiles throughout the whole video influences the mood of the song.

She added some personal touches to the song and despite her similarity with Shania Twain in terms of vocals, she can still sing it as her own.

Overall, Dakota Rhodes gave justice to the song and got across the message of lovers having faith in each other and overcoming obstacles together.

Her talent and skills eventually made the Canadian singer notice her and praise her for a job well done!
