The well-known New Zealander country artist Keith Urban stunned the audience when he sang the Bee Gees’ song “To Love Somebody” in tribute to them on the stage of CBS’ “Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees” performance. Even though you might have missed the show, you should still watch the video.
Keith Urban told his audience that the Bee Gees had always been a tremendous source of inspiration for him before he started his homage to the group. He disclosed that he actually resided rather near to the Gibb brothers, which gave him the impression that he had a particularly close bond with them. They were around 100 miles apart when he was a child, and he claimed that distance made his aspirations seem more accessible.
Many other performers who were present paid tribute to the Bee Gees with songs. Ed Sheeran, Celine Dion, Demi Lovato, Thomas Rhett, Andra Day, and Kelsea Ballerini are some of these musicians.
One of the finest love songs ever written, according to Urban, is “To Love Somebody.” It’s clear why when you watch Keith Urban perform the song. Bee Gees members Barry and Robin Gibb first came up with the song “To Love Somebody.” 1967 saw the song’s release. Soon after its release, this song debuted in the Top 20 on the US music charts.
Keith Urban extols the virtues of the Bee Gees, expressing his wonder at how they survived the many aesthetic shifts in music during those decades and still managed to write songs of such high caliber. He claims that their songwriting quality was always exceptional. It is obvious that he respects them from the way he speaks about them to the way he performs his song in their honor.
But when Keith Urban took the stage, he undoubtedly outperformed all of these outstanding musicians.
