Beautiful music speaks to us in ways that sometimes cannot be described. Words alone are not close enough to encapsulate the wonder and energy soundwaves can produce once they hit your eardrums. The nostalgia that comes from a recognizable tune can take us back to a memory in which we felt joy, melancholy, or even pure energy to get up and dance and just shake all of life’s obstacles right off the mantle.
That’s why it was no surprise when internet duet sensation, Matt and his daughter Savanna, decided to replicate the song, “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper, that it would blow the audience away. The pair have engaged in previous recordings, but this one was truly special.
The two could be seen facing the camera and microphone in a high-ceiling living room furnished with couches, a fan, and even a very classy hardwood roof for the aesthetics. Savanna is on the left wearing a camouflaged sports jacket while her eyes shine directly at the camera. Meanwhile, on her right stood seated her father, Matt, who displays a brazen smile knowing the spectacle that would take place. The guitar ushers in the start of the performance with a string of chords to then lead Matt to start it off. His cozy, booming voice really warms up the ambiance.
You can tell Matt was really feeling the lyrics. His face, brimming with emotions, could not contain the power of the words shared in the song. “You can decide of it all, the darkness inside you can make you feel so small,” sang Matt. A supportive Savanna waited her turn by swaying in conjunction with her father’s part. Suddenly, she then came into the picture with supporting vocals. Her voice is truly distinguished with how it softly glides into the performance acting as a perfect counterpart to her father’s lead.
Like Father, Like Daughter
Savanna then starts taking upon her own verses. At this point, we’re pretty sure that this apple didn’t fall too far from the tree. The two are truly a joy to watch! Their expressions on their faces really indicate just how into the song they are and makes it that much more engaging. It really makes the difference when you can see just how much singers pour into each of their verses to show their commitment and overall dedication to their craft.
Finally, the two delivered a stellar climax by raising their voices a couple of octaves and delivering a powerful conclusion. If you have a heartbeat, then there’s a chance at this point you’re feeling the butterflies in your stomach soar and the goosebumps on your skin electrify you with riveting energy.
These two are really something special. There’s just something about their chemistry together that paints this entire picture perfectly. It’s the subtle smiles and casual looks of approval shared between the two that really stand out as a tender moment between father and daughter.
The finale shows the guitar leading to a soft decrescendo and ultimately the quieting of the atmosphere. Matt and Savanna look at each other with gleeful smiles and realize the amazing achievement they have been able to create together. This is a beautiful reminder of the power music has to enthrall us with sublime moments of wonder that have us all rejoice in peace even if it’s for a brief moment. And to that end, we thank Matt and Savanna for being stalwarts of their craft and for showing the world the gift of music.
