Earlier in the week, I posted a video of Dawn Richard performing an acoustic version of “Automatic”for the first time. Well, it was so nice the former Danity Kane diva had to do it twice. Dawn closed out her set at BMI’s “Next Fresh Thing” showcase at the Viper Room in L.A. last night with another stirring acoustic rendition of the track.
Katy Perry refuses to let “The One That Got Away” die. The “Firework” singer, who recently announced her divorce from Russell Brand, has released an acoustic version of “The One That Got Away,” her latest single from the multi-platinum Teenage Dream. The scaled back version, led by an acoustic guitar, allows Katy to showcase her voice — limitations and all. This is the third incarnation of “The One That Got Away” since its release as a single in October. We’ve heard the original, the remix featuring B.o.B, and now an acoustic version — to say Katy isn’t trying to make this song her next chart-topper would be an understatement.
