Hailed "Canada's Queen of Cabaret" by CTV, award-winning Canadian songstress Gabi Epstein insists “Don’t Rain On My Parade” with the release of her playful new rendition of the Barbra Streisand classic.
Check out “Don’t Rain On My Parade” on YouTube here:
Epstein’s version of the whimsical, self-affirming hit from 1968’s Funny Girl begins as less theatrical and more reverential, highlighting the beauty and range of the singing and the poetry of the lyrics. Then, towards the song’s final third where there’s typically a staccato, Epstein’s band adds a little bit of Latin flair, which is then where the vocals take on a fullness and theatricality.
The overall result is fun and cabaret-inspired and guaranteed to tickle even the staunchest Babs fans.
