We just got our hands on London-based Sabrina Valenzuelaâ€™sÂ adorable cover of Utada Hikaruâ€™s â€œSimple and Cleanâ€ with a wonderful accompaniment from YouTube pianist, Alex Peniera. As a self-declared video game fan, Sabrinaâ€™s skill as a vocalist shines through, carefully integrating sentimental emotion and passion into one of Square Enixâ€™s most popular theme songs.Â Valenzuela has explicitly utilized her YouTube channel as a means of working to â€œbecome a better singer and songwriterâ€. However, we definitely have to applaud this lovely twenty-one year old YouTube songstress on her absolutely gorgeous voice and continued journey as a soloist.
Peep Sabrina Valenzuelaâ€™s latest video on top. While her VGM-related songs mostly involve Final Fantasy content, check out her YouTube channel here for more cute video game covers.
P.S. Weâ€™ve been thinking about implementing a â€˜Quick Lookâ€™ series with videos and featured songs to ThaSauce to introduce emerging artists and musical twists within the VGM scene. While weâ€™re also on this topic, I want to know what readers would like to see more of. What do you guys think? Shoot me an e-mail at [email protected]t and let me know!
