Miley Cyrus covered Journey recently in a live performance at Chateau Marmont, a luxury celeb-filled hotel located in West Hollywood. During the performance, Cyrus did bare-bones versions of “Faithfully” as well as her own hit “Flowers.” Whereas the original Frontiers version of “Faithfully” is a slow-burn ballad that morphs into an epic song, this iteration of the song keeps things more calm and melancholy. As the silhouette of her gloved hand reaches out emotively, contrasted again with the yellow vintage-style light, the voice and piano cover begins to blossom.
Vocally, Cyrus is extremely flexible and emotive, with expert control over her vibrato. The push and pull between the voice and accompaniment results in a beautiful sonic experience- But it’s not over just yet. As “Faithfully” comes to a close, singer Ryan Beatty comes in an octave below, enriching the musical texture, and sealing the deal.
