Giving recognition to Casii’s beloved hometown Tulsa and one of her favorite artists Leon Russell, her take on the love song has already reached listeners across the globe. She confides, “I believe this song is one of the greatest when it comes to best-written love songs. It’s also just not an easy song to cover. Part of me viewed this as a challenge to myself and the other part viewed it as a way to express my respect for what Leon did as a songwriter and musician. Recorded in one take (It was Take #4), it forced me to accept the performance with all its nuances just like the song describes the acceptance between the two lovers. It ain’t perfect and that’s the beauty of it.” Casii’s deeply warm and rich soulful vocals are highlighted over expressive piano chords. The simplicity yet deeply evocative rendition is a must listen for any music fan.
