Teddy Swims Delivers a Soulfully Stunning Cover of India Arie’s “Beautiful Surprise”


Soul music is personal, not only for its creators but for its partakers.

American singer and songwriter Teddy Swims releases this captivating cover of India Arie’s “Beautiful Surprise,” a nostalgic choice. His raw and well-ranged delivery bleeds through with an eyes-closed body-swaying fervor.

However, the Atlanta, GA native wasn’t always revered for his singing. He’s dipped into genres pools of everything from 80’s hair metal to hip-hop. Truth is, when you’re a lover of music, you just create what feels good to you regardless of square-toed genre bounds and he proves that in this latest effort amid his previous diverse releases.

His rendition of this India Arie classic listens with handsomely rustic vocals amid an emotive performance.
