Bon Jovi – Lay Your Hands On Me – cover

My next Bon Jovi cover in the lineup is “Lay Your Hands on Me”.

It was the fourth single off their album New Jersey and made it to number 7 on Billboard Hot 100.

Live performances of the song were used for the music video which included footage from the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, WA and the Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon.

When performing the song live in the 80s and 90s, Richie Sambora used a double neck guitar with one neck tuned to drop D and the other tuned normally.

After hearing the song and thinking it would be a good Gospel song, country singer Dolly Parton contacted Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora at one point thinking the tune would be a good gospel song. She was given permission and used it for her album, Blue Smoke. Dolly and Richie even performed her cover together at Glastonbury in 2014.

I’ll be taking on the song in the traditional style of Bon Jovi with my own spin. Check out my performance and let me know what you thought!

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
