This song was requested by Calvert Lee from Malaysia who wishes to help his friend who will be performing piano in her school on August 8th 2010 in conjunction with the 53rd Independence Day of Malaysia, August 31st.
I hope this Cover and Tutorial will allow her at least a weekend to practice before the Big Day arrives. All the Best!
