Originally Done By Aretha Franklin's Older Sister Erma
This was, believe it or not, originally a romantic love song that was recorded by blues singer Erma Franklin in 1967 but hit the big time a year later when Big Brother & The Holding Company with Janis Joplin on lead vocals had a hit with it.
Faith Hill (1994) and Melissa Etheridge (2005) have also had hits with it and Kree seemed to fall between the JJ version and the FH one, while I think she could have killed the ME version. As it was, at times, it was a bit shrill, which is unusual for her
I like Kree a lot but think this was one of her weaker performances and I would have welcomed some actual critiism from the judges to let her know that this was below her usual standards.
This was the first Kree performance that did not get the "WOW" factor in our house.
Kree & Candice had the best song choices of the night. This song is PERFECT for Kree! Her voice has just enough grit to pull it off mixed with plenty of sweetness to soothe the soul. Another brilliant performance by Sweet Kree!
Kree's piece of my heart
I think she rocked it and it was amazing. Better than original Joplin to my ears!!! In my playlist ... Southeast Texas rockin blues!! Go Kree <3
