Mathai covers Justin Bieber

Mathai caught everyone’s attention after her appearance as a contestant on NBC’s reality talent show "The Voice". The beautiful singer – whose parents are from Kerala, South India – got as far as the quarter final stage of the competition, but had already built herself a pretty solid fan following before she left the show.

She has since released a string of covers on her YouTube channel. Her latest cover is that of pop sensation Justin Bieber’s song "As Long As You Love Me". In true Mathai style, she has given the song her own unique touch, making it sound almost completely different to the original version; Justin’s version is heavy on the electronic and dubstep influences, and you’d never have imagined it would sound good as an acoustic track…but have a listen to Mathai’s version below. What do you think?
