Dina Rao – At Last (Single) – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on August 17, 2012

At Last (Single)
Artist: Dina Rao
Release Date: 6/5/12

A cover of the classic Etta James song featuring the deep, jazzy vocals of Dina Rao and a variety of catch dance remixes. My favorite is actually the piano-based acoustic mix, as it best shows off Miss Rao’s fantastic voice. You can buy the single from Amazon MP3 or iTunes. More options, including a physical copy, can be found on Dina Rao’s official website.
