Jason Gray recently posted on Instagram his cover of "City Of Stars" from the movie La La Land.
"Several weeks ago we recorded 4 songs as a trio project. I was excited to get to do a couple of cover songs including this one. I love the movie and to my ear "City Of Stars" sounds like one of those timeless standards pulled from a page in the American Songbook."
"When the song won an Oscar, it was described as being both hopeful and melancholy at the same time, which is not easy for a songwriter to achieve. Mysterious, playful, wistful, happy, classic, modern, and of course romantic... it's so many things at once! It's also the kind of song that I don't normally get to do. I hope you like our little version we cooked up for you."
Jason Gray spent much of 2016 touring across the U.S. with Josh Wilson & JJ Heller. His latest album Where The Light Gets In made it’s way to Number 5 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart in July 2016, and his hit song "Sparrows" saw heavy support on Christian radio stations across the nation.
