We’ve told you about the Voice Project before. The non-profit supports efforts towards peace in North Uganda, helping in particular the women so often victimized in such conflicts. To spread the word, they record regular cover videos by well-known performers for their website. What’s the connection between cover songs and Uganda? Nothing – but a cover allows a site like ours to inform readers about their noble efforts, all while providing a great new tune. Win-win.
Their latest cover proves a particular treat. It’s Cover Me standby Nicole Atkins covering the Avett Brothers. After the boys’ Grammy performance, even your mom is probably an Avett fan, so it proves a timely selection. Atkins dug a little deeper than “Head Full of Doubt, Road Full of Promise” though. No, she travels way back to 2006’s Four Thieves Gone: The Robbinsville Sessions for her cover of “Pretend Love.” Enjoy it below.
