ALBUM REVIEW: Delta Goodrem – I Honestly Love You
It’s been a little while since we have seen Delta Goodrem acting and that’s about to change with the singer-songwriter starring in the new TV special “Olivia: Hopelessly Devoted To You”. This 2 part television event sees Delta portraying Olivia Newton-John in a biopic that looks at her incredible and long career. To coincide with “Part 1” airing this weekend the songstress has released the highly anticipated soundtrack where she covers some of Olivia’s biggest hits. All of these tracks stay true to their original form and don’t stray too far from the vocal riffs that the singer made famous. I was hoping to hear some updated and original versions that were a little more Delta inspired because at times it does feel like a karaoke record. The strongest moments come during “Love Is A Gift” and “Let Me Be There” where Delta duets with Olivia Newton-John and delivers some very magical vocal moments. Also I must commend Delta’s vocals during “Hopelessly Devoted To You” where she absolutely just soars during the high notes so effortlessly. This is a very cute collection of tracks that will have you reminiscing over old memories once you watch the upcoming TV special.
