Legend Conjures Up Buckley In The Studio
Soul star John Legend adopted his tragic hero JEFF BUCKLEY's voice for new tune SHOW ME after realising he could pull off a perfect impression of the late balladeer in the studio. Legend was trying to find his voice in the studio while recording his new album ONCE AGAIN and conjured up Buckley's voice. He says, "It was very intentional - an homage to him. Originally, I didn't intend for that... It sounded so intimate and spiritual and ethereal, and it reminded me of Jeff a bit. "I think I can sing with just about anybody, but he's one of the few singers who truly intimidates me. He's one of the best I've ever heard."
