DOLORES O’RIORDAN Covering ELVIS PRESLEY – Here’s ‘IN THE GHETTO’…

20 April 2020

Hot Press 24-07. Dolores O Riordan.

Last week Irish rock legends THE CRANBERRIES reaches 1 Billion views on
YouTube for the memorable video clip of flabbergasting mega-hit ZOMBIE.

Drummer Fergal Lawler issued a message to announce the amazing news: “We are
so delighted with the news that Zombie has reached 1 Billion views on YouTube! We are
sure Dolores has a big, proud smile on her face too. Thank you so much to all our fans
around the world for supporting us over so many years. Hopefully, you are all safe and
well in this bizarre time and managing to find some hope and positivity in our music.”

The late great DOLORES O’RORDAN was unquestionably one of the most gripping
voices in rock history. She also had a gorgeous musical interest in other artists’ great
work and covered several songs on special occasions. Like here in 2007 when she sung
a passionate version of ELVIS PRESLEY‘s classic IN THE GHETTO.

Enjoy the affecting beauty here…

Rest in Peace
