Of this cover, Meghan says, “When I was deciding which song I was going to cover for this session, the first one that stood out was ‘Black Velvet’ by Alannah Myles.  When I was growing up, it was one of my mom’s favourite songs and I remember listening to it in the car all the time and singing along to it.  When I was younger I didn’t know what the song was about, I just knew I liked the melody and the feel of it.  When I realized the song was about Elvis, I thought it was even cooler. “
