Niall Horan and Huntley Stunning Duet ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’
Two talented musicians, Niall Horan and The Voice winner Huntley, joined forces for a stunning duet, performing Bob Dylan’s classic “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”
Not many singer-songwriters have had even a tenth of the impact of Bob Dylan. Throughout his career, which has spanned decades, he has produced dozens of classic and memorable hit tunes. Additionally, he is consistently considered one of the greatest songwriters of all time. His songs, even though they may be decades old, are still constantly covered by other artists.
In a clip posted on YouTube, Niall and Huntley cover one of Bob’s many classic songs, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.” Both sit on stools in the center of the stage as they strum on guitars and belt out the classic lyrics, first written and performed by Bob Dylan.
“Mama, take this badge from me
I can’t use it anymore
It’s getting dark, too dark to see
Feels like I’m knocking on Heaven’s door”
To put it simply, Niall and Huntley’s cover is outstanding. Their voices work well together, perfectly complementing one another. Huntley’s scratchy and raspy tone makes for an excellent pairing with Niall’s more clean-cut sound.
Niall and Huntley’s rendition is worth multiple listens. It’s such a calming and soothing cover. The studio audience seemed to agree as well. At the end of their duet, the studio audience erupted in a thunderous round of applause.
Others agreed as well. Several people who commented on the video’s YouTube expressed their astonishment at the awe-inspiring cover of the Bob Dylan classic.
“This was the best rendition of Knockin' on Heaven’s Door I’ve ever listened to. With Niall’s storyteller (sic) voice and Huntley’s husky tone and those high notes and harmonies, it’s just incredible. Great job, gentlemen! I’d listen to a full album of your collaboration any day,” one person wrote.
“Cried the first time I heard them and now I listen to it daily. Sooooo good!!!” another individual added.
Psalm 95:1 “O come, let us make songs to the Lord; sending up glad voices to the Rock of our salvation.”
