Dallinda Patton: Me and a Gun (Tori Amos Cover)

While browsing Youtube for Tori Amos videos, I stumbled across this extraordinary acapella cover of “Me and a Gun” by Dallinda Patton.

Dallinda’s description of her video says: “This song means the world to me, as a rape victim just the words express how I feel, this is my first cover. If you like it please give me a thumbs up (if you or somebody you know have been sexually abused please call 1-800-656-4673 it’s free and confidential.

Knowing her personal connection to the song’s painful lyrics makes her performance even more haunting, so much so it brought tears to my eyes. Yet Dallinda’s beautiful voice and impressively professional vocal phrasing would make any song sound magnificent. I really hope this isn’t the last time we get to hear her astounding voice…
