Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years" - Chromatik's Tune of the Day

Not sure what’s more haunting, this ballad that Christina Perri wrote for Twilight: Breaking Dawn  or the supernatural hunks lusted after in the movie. Actually, it's no contest. This windy arrangement will leave goosebumps on your back for at least a week. Perri delivers the lyrics in a soft tone, reminding us how powerful pianissimo can sound if used correctly. Not always does a song need belted vocals to leave a mark, and Perri taught us the importance in sound dynamics.
