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