Killing Me Softly was originally composed and written by Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel, and was made famous by Roberta Flack in 1973. It’s been covered by hundreds of artists over the years, but Caitlin Quisenberry’s version is definitely one of the best.
With her beautiful voice and emotive delivery, she brings the song to life in a way that’s both respectful of the original and fresh for today’s audiences.
It starts off quietly, with just her voice and a piano, but it builds steadily until it reaches its crescendo. And you can hear the country influence in the instrumentation, which gives it a truly distinctive sound.
If you get a chance, be sure to check out Caitlin’s Killing Me Softly—I think you’ll love it!
