Ariana & the Rose

Ariana & the Rose covers ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’

Last year we introduced you to Ariana & the Rose, a synth-pop singer-songwriter creating waves on the music scene with her song ‘Give Up The Ghost’.

Ariana & the Rose recently took part in a session for Viber Presents. As well as performing her single, Ariana also wowed everyone with a spectacular synth-pop cover of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’.

The cover was so well received, that even Cyndi herself gave it her seal of approval! Cyndi shared and endorsed the cover on her Facebook page, saying that the singer-songwriter had done a “fabulous” job.

The cover is unlike any version you’ll have heard before! It stars off quite haunting and relaxed, that is until the drum beat kicks in, as does Ariana’s powerful vocals. The cover showcases her vocals brilliantly and she provides her own twist on such a recognisable song.

Ariana’s session was for Viber Presents, which launched in 2014 as a dedicated new music programme that lives within Viber as a Public Chat. Its goal is to feed new music conversations and content to over 500 million users globally. It allows Viber? users to follow conversations, connect and engage with new music content and artists. You can check out all the current content on Viber Presents here.

If you fancy catching Ariana & the Rose live, then get yourself down to The Old Blue Last in London on March 9th where she will be playing a free show, supporting Avec Sans and IV. You will find more information on The Old Blue Last website.
