Congratulations to Mike Fusco for his first Laptop Session!
It’s been a few months since we started the Laptop Sessions acoustic rock cover songs video blog. And that entire time, we’ve been trying to get my brother Mike Fusco into the mix, no pun intended. You may remember Mike Fusco as the famous voice and mind behind Dr. K. on WCJM free internet radio. You may also remember Mike as the “self-proclaimed teen heartthrob.” But here on the Laptop Sessions, he’s simply Mike Fusco- singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and fellow mater of the cover song art.
Tonight, I graciously gave Mike my normal spot in the cover song rotation (in other words, “YES! I get a day off- thank you Mike!), but don’t worry, I’ll be back on Tuesday with another great cover song from another artist we haven’t covered yet here on the music blog.
Mike begins his tenue with the Laptop Sessions with his emotional cover of Elvis Presley’s classic love song, “Can’t Help Falling In Love.” Mike did a great job with this, giving the song extra meaning, considering the situation he was in. I’m happy that instead of just sulking, he turned his emotions into a great cover of this classic song.
We hope to get a Mike song on the video blog once a week. He has our full support here and we hope you’ll help welcome Mike to the Laptop Sessions!
