Spotlight: "If You Asked Me To" - Angeline Quinto & Erik Santos

So when I recently saw the trailer for Star Cinema's upcoming John Lloyd Cruz-Angel Locsin romcom "Unofficially Yours" (which yes I will watch of course) and heard this song, it was love at first listen. You know what I'm tired of covers/revivals that has been dominating the local music scene but for some reason this cover of the Patti Labelle original (Celine Dion also has a version of this song) struck a chord on me. The voices of Quinto and Santos blended well and this is really a good cover of the song and not just a karaoke version if you get what I mean. I welcome remakes if they are well done and this one is particularly strong.
