Internationally acclaimed Greek- French singer George Perris has combined a daring range of musical choices on his English language recording debut, Picture This, (‘sensational debut…’ raves Broadway World and others) including a masterful interpretation of Annie Lennox’s signature song ‘Why.’ Hailed upon its 1992 release as a bittersweet declaration of independence from her years with the Eurythmics, it resonates two decades later as timeless classic. Perris manages to move the pensive ballad to new crossroads, delivering a compelling vocal performance of wonderment and compassion. “’Why’ has always been one of my favorite all-time songs,” says George. “Immensely powerful songwriting that goes straight to the heart. No pretensions.” Perris’ stunning version, now available on iTunes, is both tribute and revelation, rendered with haunting clarity as a universal query on the human condition.
