You Get Triple the Fun with @iamJakeBarker on “Sugar”


One of my very favourite underdog contestants from Season 6 of “The Voice”, NYC’s Jake Barker, reminds us of how very good he is and why he ended up on Adam Levine’s team, with his recent cover of Maroon 5’s “Sugar”.  This is not a song that I’m entirely crazy about, even after Chris Jamison gave a credible go at it on “The Voice” last season.  But Jake’s warm vocal – with the triple fun harmonies as you will see and hear – reminded me when he performed Maroon 5’s “She Will Be Loved” on the show.  Neither of these songs are at all easy to cover because of Adam Levine’s unique vocal style, but “Sugar” will assure you of his own style and Jake sends this one home just as well.  I’m anxiously awaiting more original Jake Barker songs after last year’s Stage Fright EP.  Watch the video above.
