Watch now: Benjamin Kheng and Tabitha Nauser cover Livin' On A Prayer
It's not so tough
The Bon Jovi classic is now stripped-down
What do you get when two 'it' powerhouses come together musically? Magic — or something pretty close to it. Tabitha Nauser and Benjamin Kheng spared some time off their busy schedules (the former's a singer, television host and 98.7FM DJ while the latter's, well, Benjamin Kheng) to cover Bon Jovi's Livin' On A Prayer.
This beautiful, stripped-down version trades the original's rock sound for a soulful pop ballad. While the '80s classic has been covered to death by the likes of Dead or Alive and the Glee cast, Nauser and Kheng give an intimate, emotionally-dripping take to the song about a working class couple in this recently released rendition. Watch their cover below, and prepare to give the replay button some action.
