Cam Pays Tribute to Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan With Rocking 'Zombie' Performance
Cam ditched her girly sweet persona and became a nineties rock queen during a recent tribute night at Nashville's Basement East nightclub. The country singer took on the Cranberries’ “Zombie” in honor of the late Dolores O’Riordan, who died on January 15 at age 46.
The club is known for its regular tribute shows, and Cam’s performance was part of “Sing Me Back Home: A Celebration of Artists Lost in 2017.” The salute featured songs by Tom Petty, Chuck Berry and Chris Cornell, among others. Folk rock band Langhorne Slim reprised a version of “Blueberry Hill” for Fats Domino, while Paul Cauthen and Cody Jinks paid tribute to Cornell with Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.” The whole lineup came together to perform Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.”
The event raised money for the Polaris projects, which aims to fight human trafficking. Watch Cam’s wild performance below, via The Rolling Stone.
