While a whole new crop of inductees will be brought into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this Friday (April 8), today (April 6) we’re taking a look back at what a recent Rock Hall inductee has been up to with an exclusive video of Heart‘s Ann Wilson performing a raw, stunning John Lennon cover.
As part of her upcoming episode of The Kate, Wilson takes the stage as the leader of The Ann Wilson Thing, a Heart side project that finds her peerless voice reinterpreting various rock, soul and blues classics.
In the below video, watch Wilson tackle Lennon’s lovely, desperate Plastic Ono Band classic “Isolation.” When Wilson arrives at the part of the song where Lennon starts scream-singing, get ready to be floored.
Watch the exclusive video of The Ann Wilson Thing’s “Isolation” below, and check out her take on Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” beneath that.
The Ann Wilson Thing’s full episode of The Kate — which also boasts covers of Aretha Franklin and Bob Dylan — debuts this Saturday, April 9, on TheKate.tv. Named after Katherine Hepburn, The Kate is filmed in front of a live audience at the historic 250-seat Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, Connecticut.
