Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart hit it out of the park with this cover of a Led Zeppelin classic. I own this song and Led Zeppelin's "Live at OC3" Reunion CD. Listened to both versions of the song many times and this "Live" version has more energy and "Heart" then the Led Zeppelin version from 2007.

The ending of the song will give you chills.

From Forbes Magazine 12/27/ 2012.

Jack Black delivered the introduction to the Zeppelin segment, calling them "the best band ever." This was followed by performances of Zeppelin classics by the Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, and Lenny Kravitz. There was some excellent musicianship displayed, but frankly it was tough for any of the lead singers to truly come close to matching Plant's unique singing style.

But then Ann and Nancy Wilson came on stage for the finale, an inspiring "bring down the house" version of "Stairway to Heaven", with Jason Bonham on drums. UltimateClassicRock.com said of the moment:

In a performance that had Robert Plant on the verge of tears, Ann & Nancy Wilson of Heart sang `Stairway to Heaven' as the finale of a star-studded musical tribute to Led Zeppelin during the Kennedy Center Honors, which were broadcast last night (Dec. 26) on CBS.

It seems like about 3,000 people were on stage during this performance, with the Wilson sisters joined by late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham's son Jason on drums, as well as a gigantic house band featuring string and horn sections and what appeared to be two different vocal choirs.

As anyone who's seen their frequent live performances of `Rock and Roll` or `The Battle of Evermore` can tell you, the Wilson sisters know how to play Led Zeppelin live. From the moment they began, all eyes and ears were focused on Ann Wilson, and she knocked this one out of the park, leaving John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and a clearly misty Plant with big smiles on their faces as they watched from the balcony."

When I have listened to certain music on my extremely high quality sound system I have been been moved to tears a few times.

One such time was listening to a live set by Lenny Kravitz and the second time was listening to this version of Stairway to Heaven by Heart.

Special treat was seeing John Bonham’s son Jason rocking out on drums for them. My favorite part of this song is around 4:19 when Heart is backed by the Joyce Garrett Youth Choir- absolutely powerful addition!

I am so proud to call myself a Seattleite and mention Ann and Nancy Wilson in the same sentence! Wow these are the Queens and Goddesses of Rock! I saw them perform live in Seattle a few years ago (2006) and was blown away by Ann's voice!

And Wilson still has it!!! She was simply fantastic. And who ever played guitar was incredible. What a tribute to the best rock 'n roll band ever.

There are none that can match Robert Plant's iconic vocal skills when he sang Stairway to heaven back in the day. But as time has passed, and the young Robert Plant that at that time had a three octave voice range slowly lost his range when he reached full grown manhood. He still has a terrific voice, but the high notes (and he is the first to admit it) are gone. BUT! There is still one person who can still reach those stellar notes; Ann Wilson. Do yourself a favor and find this cover song that she, along with her sister Nancy doing back up vocals, on YouTube, or Amazon prime and listen to this woman TEAR IT UP! She makes the hair raise up on the back of my neck as she makes the old Led Zepplin song her own!

Absolutely stunning performance by Ann and Nancy and wonderful to watch live with video readily available on most popular streaming sites. Unfortunately this is not the original audio - someone in a studio decided to mix and "perfect" it and in doing so really flattens Ann's vocals out in spots removing the emotion. There are a few areas where the tempo seems to be off compared to the broadcast as if spliced with with rehearsal audio although that could be an effect from someone playing with a mixing board. Would have greatly preferred the original broadcast audio but still receives 3 stars as it was probably the best "live" performance since the Freddy Mercury tribute twenty years ago.

They saved the best for last. Only Ann Wilson could pull off Led Zeppelin without a hitch. A classic performance.
