This transformation of Clash of the Cover Bands into Aretha Franklin will give you goosebumps.
It’s a “Natural” talent!
This week’s Clash of the Cover Bands will air tonight, November 3rd, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Elisa Furr, a Celine Dion tribute artist, and Elaine Gibbs, who covers Aretha Franklin’s music, perform “Powerhouse Vocals” on the song 17.
Elaine is the one to beat, as evidenced by an exclusive sneak peek at her performance of Queen of Soul’s “(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman.”
“We have a lot of legends,” Elaine says before taking the stage in Aretha’s costume.
Elaine has performed with some of the biggest names in the world of R&B, pop, and gospel music, including Rod Stewart, Justin Timberlake, and Bobby Womack, in over 25 countries.
Elaine now wears a bouffant wig and sequin pants to fully embody Aretha Franklin’s gravitas.
Meghan Trainor exclaims, “She’s so good!” Ester Dean and Adam Lambert clap in agreement.
All three judges are up and dancing by the end of Elaine’s performance.
Meghan exclaims, “Elaine!”
“You make me perspire!”
“Tonight’s theme is powerhouse vocals,” Ester agrees, “and you have provided us with powerhouse vocals.”
“Everything she did was for Black women to stand up and feel confident, not because she was singing it but because you felt it inside yourself,” Ester continues as a tribute to Aretha.
“You made me feel that way.”
