Singer and Sony ATV songwriter Coline Creuzot pays tribute to Aaliyah with a powerful acoustic cover of, “At Your Best.” Coline uses her impressive vocal range to subtly draw every emotion out of the famous ballad to honor the late singer on what would have been her 37th birthday. Aaliyah’s fans will be moved by Coline’s ability to capture Aaliyah’s sweet and sultry sound. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
“Aaliyah is one of my all-time favorite artists because she made timeless music,” Coline said. “I admire and respect any artist who uses natural talent and creativity to leave a lasting impression. I aim to do that with my own music and Aaliyah is still among my greatest inspirations, even 14 years after her untimely death.”
The late Aaliyah inspired many with her “jazz personality and G mentality.” When the songstress passed away on Aug. 25, 2001, hearts broke around the world. In death, she has continued to inspire millions with hits such as “Try Again,” “Rock the Boat,” and “Are You That Somebody.”
“The cover was something I had to do,” Coline said. “When you think about R&B, you can’t help but think of her voice. Her creativity and versatility as an artist should be remembered and revered. If a cover was the only way I could show my immense love and respect for Aaliyah, then that’s what I was going to do.”
Coline works with the likes of acclaimed producer Happy Perez (Miguel, Frank Ocean, and Janelle Monae). Coline has also been featured on the BET Music Matters Tour along with J. Cole, and Elle Varner and as a singer in Solange’s video “I Decided.”
