Hear This Singer Perform A Beautifully Nostalgic Cover Of The Goo Goo Dolls' 'Iris'


In the late '90s, The Goo Goo Dolls released a song called "Iris." Today, the song still gives us goosebumps. 

So, naturally, when we noticed Kina Grannis performing a cover of the song almost 20 years later, we were intrigued. Grannis' voice has lent itself to some of our favorite covers, including Sia's "Cheap Thrills" and Selena Gomez's "It Ain't Me."

In a video uploaded to her YouTube channel, Grannis sings a slowed-down version of "Iris," complimented by the piano. She says she's been receiving requests to cover this particular song for years. 

"You've managed to take one of my all time favorite songs and transform it into this beautiful, beautiful creation," one viewer comments on the video.

"Your voice is so pure and honest in this song," another adds.

That said, be sure to check out the beautiful — and incredibly nostalgic — cover below.
