Spotlight Story: A Cover Story
Since Nick started touring solo in 2002, fans have not only gotten to enjoy his own music, but also songs he's covered that were originally recorded by other artists. From artists that inspired his own career to Top 40 tunes, you never know what you're going to get!

For the Spotlight Story last month, we asked you what your favorite cover song has been that Nick has performed and you guys listed everything from Oasis' "Wonderwall" to "Heaven" by Bryan Adams and so much more.

Read which songs our June Spotlight Storyteller, IIze, named as her favorites below.

"Wow! This question is actually a tough one! That man! THAT voice!! He could sing absolutely everything and still sound great! 

 But thinking about it, I would probably say “Faithfully” by Journey. These are one of these songs that touch your heart. Beautiful melody, beautiful lyrics and with the very emotional performances Nick gives his fans, it always seems like the song would have been one of his. He sounds perfect. His strong, beautiful voice takes your breath away! 

But it happens often.... Like in this Instagram video here - a cover of "Ordinary World". I guess I lost 5 minutes of my time just listening to it. But you know what? It made me happy. I just wanted to mention it here, as well. Because really every song performs is … special! Or Nick makes it special."

    Although there are so many great covers he does my favorite is & has always been 'Turn The Page'. I found an old bootleg mp3 back in 03 or 04 from a show & played it over & over. Now it's even better having it available on YouTube! It's one of my favorite songs anyway, so Nick singing it makes it even better!!

    Watery eyes. Haven't heard it nor seen it live but I love this one as well. Sometimes I cry with this cover of Journey's Faithfully especially with certain lines that I become emotional. Congrats Ilze <3 :o) Is this now twice that you have won spotlight stories because you do narrate the stories as splendid as a devoted fan can <3 :o)

    I'd agree faithfully does have the emotion and the voice control that nick uses. It fits his voice beautifully and he delivers it with such passion and emotion. For being the youngest in a group of five his voice and the emotion behind it doesn't change. He is truly an inspiration and he's got such a powerful and beautiful voice. I can't imagine the music world without him. Love you nick. ??
