The Many Versions of Singin’ in the Rain

It’s a classic with so many interpretations.

There’s the original.

Then there is Usher’s version.

As much as I like Usher’s version of “Singin in the Rain”. This rendition is by far my favorite.

Young Edward’s performance is oddly similar to my own renditions of “Singin in the Rain”. Which is either good for this kid because his talent can only improve or bad for me since I only perform “Singin’ in the Rain” when I’m drunk (you know, after drinking intense amounts of Cranberry juice).
