Delilah covers Donny Hathaway’s “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know” in the Live Lounge [Video]


We brought you her cover of Rita Ora’s RIP for BBC Radio 1 earlier this week, but whilst she was in the Live Lounge on Tuesday, Delilah also performed a cover of Donny Hathaway‘s “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know” for 1Xtra.

Stunning stuff from this incredible talent – I’m talking goosebumps, spine-tingles, nervous shivers, increased heartrate and all sorts using just a bass guitar and her voice. It’s one of the best versions of the song that I’ve heard, getting as close to the aching soul of the original as anyone (Amy Winehouse apart) ever has.

Even among this current golden generation of UK vocalists, with world class talent in droves, Delilah’s really something special. Perhaps she’s not yet even getting the credit she deserves.
