This isn’t the first time I’ve discussed JonTron, he’s been featured in at least three Top 10’s on the site and you can check those out here, here and here. But just in case you don’t know who he is, Jon Jafari, more commonly known as JonTron is an American YouTube personality, the co-founder and former co-host of Game Grumps, the co-founder of Normal Boots, as well as the operator of his own YouTube channel called JonTronShow. Today I will be reviewing his cover of Firework by Katy Perry.
‘Firework’ is a powerful song, about being true to yourself and not hiding who you are, whether you like the original artist Katy Perry or not, you can’t deny that it’s a good song with a worthwhile message. JonTron truly does it justice, apparently coming from a musical theatre background, you get a strong grasp of his capabilities, and at least I was truly impressed by his range. There are points in the song where he is clearly straining his voice but even these sections fit well with the overall performance, and I like how he can swap between the more soothing, melodic sections and the high energy parts where he is belting it out. Honestly it was such a fantastic musical journey, backed up even more by a truly impressive video, animated in various different styles by at least 22 different people, whom you can find linked in the video description.
So that’s what I thought of JonTron’s cover of ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry and if you want to check it out then head on over to YouTube. Also for the latest update and to support JonTron make sure to follow him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
