Rufus Wainwright Beautifully Covers Motown in Black & White Video


The cover honors Stevie Wonder for Art of Elysium's fundraising gala, Heaven.

We all know Rufus Wainwright can turn some beautiful lyrics with some equally beautiful vocals. Who hasn't bawled along to his rendition of "Hallelujah" over a plate of Bagel Bites and a series of unanswered text messages?

He recently lent his vocal chops to a cover of Motown's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours," recreated as a beautiful piano ballad for the Art of Elysium's fundraising gala, Heaven, which honors Stevie Wonder. Wainwright provides a beautiful touch for the soulful classic.

He recently released the accompanying video, a continuous black and white clip featuring a group of dapper men (Wainwright included) handing each other off as dance partners. Choreographed by Katherine Helen Fisher, the video is inspired by the dance scene from Federico Fellini's 1963 film, 8 1/2, as well as the 1987 play La Ronde (The Round). The moody lighting and the classically romantic style perfectly complements Wainwright's version of the Motown track.
