Mat and Savanna Shaw, the father and daughter duo, sing a beautifully moving cover of ‘Edelweiss’ from ‘The Sound of Music.’ The two of them sit on a couch with a guitarist, Nick Petty.
They stay true to the serene and calming sound of the original song while also making it distinct with their fantastic voices. Behind them, there is a kitchen in what appears to be a charming home.
The first to start singing is Mat. His voice is fatherly and soothing. He smiles when he looks at Savanna, and she smiles back at him. Savanna then joins her father in singing.
Savanna’s voice is magnificent and sweet. Together the two of them create a melody that is heartwarming and moving like the original. In the movie, Christopher Plummer sings the song for his children.
It is easy to be hypnotized by their voices as they sway back and forth on the couch. Their cover is longer than the original song. The father and daughter harmonize perfectly.
Mat and Savanna’s eyes are full of love and pride when they perform together. They give each other the time to shine while backing up the other. Nick Petty plays the guitar perfectly.
The performance ends with the sound of the guitar, and all of them smile. Mat talks about how ‘Edelweiss’ is one of their favorite songs, and they thank Nick for coming to play for them.
