GRAMMYs/Dec 7, 2021 - 11:43 pm

What better way to pay homage to Greece than traditional instrumentation on an old-world backdrop?

With ruins behind him on a jet-black night, multilingual singer/songwriter George Perris performs an evocative version of his song "No Armor" in the below video.

"The hands of time turn slowly/ So it seems/ But all the days turn quickly to years," Perris croons in a burgundy suit, accompanied by spectral acoustic strums from two accompanists.

In the latest episode of Global Spin, a video series highlighting luminous artists from around the world, soak in Perris' crepuscular performance and get a taste of his native land.

ReImagined At Home: Watch George Perris Perform A Gossamer Version Of Mariah Carey's 1997 Classic "Butterfly"

In this episode of ReImagined At Home, watch singer/songwriter George Perris cover Mariah Carey's GRAMMY-nominated song "Butterfly."

GRAMMYs/Apr 27, 2022 - 07:41 pm

Part of the fun of ReImagined At Home is learning which songs still have legs all these years later. 

Within this GRAMMY.com performance series, artists perform GRAMMY-centric songs from yesteryear — from Train's "Drops of Jupiter" to Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats." 

Now, we have Greek/French singer/songwriter George Perris up to bat. Does Mariah Carey's "Butterfly," released all the way back in 1997, still hold up? The answer is a resounding yes — which says a lot about both Perris' interpretive talent and the strength of the original.

In this episode of ReImagined At Home, watch Perris navigate the emotional terrain of Carey's classic with poise . Backed by a sympathetic band, Perris sings Carey's words tenderly.

"Spread your wings and prepare to fly/ For you have become a butterfly," he croons. "Fly abandonedly into the sun/ If you should return to me/ We truly were meant to be." Back in 1997, "Butterfly" earned Carey a nomination for a GRAMMY for Best Female Pop Performance.
