It was said that Robert Plant enjoyed Ann Wilson of Heart’s performance of Stairway to Heaven during the Kennedy Center Honors so much that it actually brought tears to his eyes. Backed by a full on gospel choir and the late John Bonham’s son (Jason) on drums, the performance spread quickly over social media the next day. Now, Heart has released the track for purchase on iTunes.
"I am so happy you all liked our performance of Stairway to Heaven at The Kennedy Center Honors event. It was our honor to be asked to do it before an audience like that. My main goal though was to please Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones...especially Plant, since all these many years he has taught me so much about singing from the soul and has given me such pleasure in his lyrics. What a high that night was. Never to be forgotten!" wrote vocalist Ann Wilson.
Heart is already having a good year. In April, they will travel to Los Angeles to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along side other rock greats like Albert King, RUSH, and of course the most rockin rocker of all time, the man who oozes rock from his very pores… Flavor Flav. Yes, I know. Don’t get me started.
