I am thoroughly embarrassed to admit that I had not heard of Elyse Davis nor had I heard her sing this amazing rendition of Greensleeves until today! I do consider myself a huge fan of Mannheim Steamroller however I have apparently failed since the following video has been around since 2014.
Elyse is the daughter of Mannheim Steamroller founder Chip Davis. The apple apparently does not fall far from the tree when it come to musical talent in this family. Chip wrote a special arrangement of this classic just for Elyse and she absolutely nails it. Her sultry, smoky voice fits beautifully with with the jazzy, modern version of of a song rumored to have been penned by King Henry VIII. I believe the the King would be proud! Take a few minutes to watch this video – it will be time well spent!
