Jimmie Allen joined forces with Abby Anderson for a powerful cover of “A Star Is Born,” a tune made popular by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born.
The Grammy-winning hit is nominated for Best Original Song at the upcoming Academy Awards on Feb. 24.
“A Star is Born was one of my favorites from last year, and the performance of this song in the film really moved me as an artist,” says Jimmie. “I had chills! Getting to cover ‘Shallow’ with my good friend Abby was such a cool experience. She’s an incredible vocalist, and I’m excited for fans to hear our take on the song.”
“I bawled like a baby during A Star Is Born,” adds Abby. The song ‘Shallow’ immediately stood out to me. When Jimmie called and asked if I would sing on this song with him, I was honored. I mean, I’m no Lady Gaga, but working on this with Jimmie, who pours his whole heart into a song vocally, was an absolute joy.”
