For those of you who don’t know, Eric Benét released a Japanese album full of remakes of classic hits from the eighties called E to U: Volume 1.  One of those tracks was Almost Paradise, the classic duet from the movie Footloose (originally performed by Mike Reno and Ann Wilson) and he chose kpop star Ailee as his partner for the track.  While the original production was used, the vocal arrangement was changed to better compliment their voices.  The two mesh well on the track, doing proper justice for the track.

The two also appeared in concert together on December 13, 2014 and they performed a live version of Benét’s own classic, Spend My Life With You.
