Amber Riley Covers Adele's "Someone Like you"

As Adele's popularity soars worldwide its unsurprising singers have been clambering to cover the English vocalist's classy tunes. John Legend gave us his, not so great, cover of Rolling in the deep a few weeks back and now Glee actor/singer Amber Riley gives an Adele song a try by covering the already classic Someone like you

Amber's voice doesn't have the full bodied tone, or maturity of Adele's voice, and as such it doesn't carry the emotional weight of the song as effectively. However, it's still a good, if lighter, cover that deserves praise for hitting all the right notes and being a good deal better than John Legend's attempt. I'm sure it won't be too long now before Ms Riley is giving us a mastered version of an Adele song- via the Glee series- for us to give a proper assessment of how her voice really handles the challenge.
