Jacquie Lee can do no wrong. This much is clear in, well, every song we have ever seen her perform, but especially in her latest cover for PopCrush: the Prince classic ‘When Doves Cry.’

We’ve seen the ‘Broken Ones’ singer belt out everything from Beyonce’s ‘Pretty Hurts’ to Rihanna’s ‘Love the Way You Lie,’ but this time, she’s covering something totally unexpected — and she absolutely kills it. But really, was there ever any doubt?

Jacquie Lee’s rendition of ‘When Doves Cry’ is filled with the same trademark passion and emotion that the ‘Voice’ singer pours into every one of her performances, but we can’t help but be blown away by her killer pipes in this particular number. While Prince’s version of the song is super upbeat and funky, we love how Jacquie Lee slows it down with nothing but her unbelievable voice and keyboard accompaniment. She transforms the song into an insanely powerful ballad, one that boasts the voice and maturity of someone way older than her teenage years.
