I’ve recently been asked to sing a Nat King Cole tribute with When I Fall In Love at a forthcoming wedding. I explained to the groom that I was always reluctant to sing it because every backing track I’d heard was terrible. After mixing the original with some albion strings and other bits I had something that sounded pretty authentic to the original track. Capturing the essence and the atmosphere of Nat’s sound was a challenge. I know my voice is slightly different and it’s not the easiest voice to do as it can sound like a parody if it’s overdone. I hope I’ve done it justice and any Nat fans will enjoy my version.
This song gets me every time. I hope I don’t start blubbing when they do their first dance. I’m sure everyone will be in bits.
