Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' gets a choral cover from conductor Eric Whitacre

(Edu Hawkins/Redferns)

The 2014 iTunes Festival audience attending Grammy-winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre’s set got a special surprise—a cover of Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball.” With Marius Beck on vocals and the delicate choral backing, what was a strong track and a statement-making music video becomes a nuanced, tender heartbreak of a song. 

This rendition streaming below will be available on Whitacre’s new album, Eric Whitacre Live at iTunes Festival 2014, which releases March 23.
