Heart performs this so well it was just amazing.

I loved watching the video on YouTube and seeing how the members of Led Zepplin loved listening to heart.

Their original music is amazing, but the Led Zeppelin tributes they play are also great.

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."

It's no surprise to anyone with ears that Ann Wilson had the greatest voice in rock. But to maintain that standard at 62 years of age - is phenomenal. This, ladies and gentlemen, is how rock-n-roll is supposed to sound.

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.

I caught the performance by "Heart" at the Kennedy Center Honors, hearing the music of the Musicians being honored ("Led Zeppelin" ?) for the first time. I love the song, as done by the sisters, the musicians and the choir as much as the surviving members of the original "Zeppelins" did. They appeared to be blown away by the production's successful innovative style. The Choir is a masterful stroke. I watch my video of the show frequently.
Oh, BTW, I'm a big fan of Yo Yo Mas who obviously enjoyed the show, as much as the huge audience which, joined by the performers, gave a huge "Standing O".

OK, the thing here is that I HATE covers, 98% of the time they are embarrassing at best when compared to the original but this was an amazing performance and it all worked. It is not better than the original (I can't even imagine that) but it is the best cover I have ever seen and there have been many and most were horrible. Go watch this performance on YouTube and then you will be back to buy this, trust me.
