Edoardo Esposito (Edo Sparks)

The Italian singer-songwriter (who also plays in a band in Rome called Florida) offers a very strummy, sunny and dignified rendition of the No Doubt song, opening the clip by introducing the tune and saying, "Enjoy," like he's a waiter setting down a plate. Perched on a stool against a plain white background, rarely looking into the camera, Esposito is as unassuming as it gets. Even so, the combination of his Italian accent, a rich vocal tone, and the genuine emotion he imparts to the melody make the song sound like it could be his own composition. Solid work.
