Evita's Rachel Potter Joins Forces with VoicePlay for Taylor Swift/Justin Bieber Mashup (Plus Video)
27 Mar 2013
Rachel Potter, most recently on Broadway as The Mistress in Evita, recently joined forces with the Orlando-based male a cappella group VoicePlay to release a mashup cover of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" and Justin Bieber's “As Long As You Love Me."
“When the guys asked me to join this project, I didn’t hesitate,” said Potter in a statement. “I’m a total sucker for anything a ccapella, and after hearing the arrangement VoicePlay put together, I jumped at the chance!”
VoicePlay comprises singers Earl Elkins, Jr., Geoff Castellucci, Layne Stein, Eli Jacobson and Tony Wakim. Arrangements were penned by Stein and Hannah Juliano.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
