Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” covered by The Portland Cello Project orchestra (Video)

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery and [in an industry where some covers of some of world’s greatest songs don’t sound flattering as they are produced for the money not for the art..] it’s always great to hear a cover that, for one, you weren’t expecting, and two, a cover that’s truly an amazing piece of work – let alone art.

On that note, In December 17, 2010 at a sold out show in Portland, Oregon’s Crystal Ballroom, The Portland Cello Project orchestra performed a beautiful rendition of Kanye West‘s “All of the Lights”, taken from his international critically acclaimed album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
