    It was recently Sydney producer Taka Perry's turn to take on triple j's Like A Version, and he decided to cover Kanye West's Jesus Walks. Spolier alert, he absolutely nailed it.

    Taka was joined by A.GIRL, Emalia and Gia Vorne on vocals, with the quartet interpolating their cover of Jesus Walks with Kendrick Lamar and SZA's All The Stars, covering two iconic songs for the price of one.

    Speaking about the cover, he explained why he chose both songs, as well as got the trio in to feature as vocalists. “I remember old school Kanye playing on the radio growing up and Jesus Walks was the song I loved the most. It’s such an iconic song and one that you think would have been done before but, surprisingly it wasn’t, so I knew I had to do it.

    "I added All The Stars because I felt like my favourite Like A Versions are the ones that give a nod to another song in their arrangement. What’s better than one cover? Doing two! I wanted to use the LAV platform to be able to shed some light on some of my favourite artists in the country that Australia may not have heard before.

    "I decided to get in A.GIRL, Emalia and Gia, as they’re all so good at what they do, and unique to each other, that I knew they were the only ones that could take the performance where I wanted it to go. They’re also some of my closest friends so I loved being able to share it with them.
