Review: Jemma Michael Covers ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’

Jemma Michael is a singer/songwriter from London. In 2015, her friends got her up, when she was watching X Factor auditions, onto the stage at Wembley. The crowd loved her, and it spurred her on to do more singing/songwriting.

Jemma has recently put up her first cover in ages, ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, one of my favourite songs. Jemma’s voice is so soft, and beautiful and it’s the perfect song for her to cover. The soulfulness and delicate aspect of her voice give a unique edge to the song. Hitting the high notes perfectly, her vocals really shine through on this cover, and you can tell she has connected with the song and picking up the emotional side of it.

The piano backing track mellows into her voice and her vocals blend with it seamlessly.

I can’t wait to see what Jemma has coming up in 2020, all I know is she will be so successful with a voice like that!
