    Hello everybody on HIVE, and especially the Music Community. My name is Jasper and I'm writing (and singing) to you from Cape Town, South Africa!

    I am into the 13th week of this challenging series of posts I have set myself for Thursdays! BUT I Need your Help to keep going please!

    This is the challenge I'm setting myself every Thursday: I ask for cover song requests on the MUSIC community, and then pick a favourite song to learn and post a live video of me attempting it. The person who asked for the winning song then gets 50% of the post rewards in HP! If I pick a second song, that person gets 20% of the post rewards in HP as well!

    This week's winner is @eugelys who asked me to do something "Christmassy" as the big day is now only 3 days away! She asked for "Last Christmas" by Wham, but also showed me a video of Emilia Clark singing it in a recent Christmas movie. Her version actually sounds a lot more jingly and like Christmas compared to the original, and it was nice to see Emilia not burning down an entire town of innocents with her dragon, so let's give it a shot!

    Here is the original:

    And here is Emilia Clark's version (ah the movie was even called "Last Christmas" too! Was it in honour of George Michael?):

    Well done @eugelys! You get 50% of this post's reward in HP!

    I can't help myself! I quickly dedicated some time to learning another request. @zullyscott originally asked for something I have already done, but then asked for "Perfect" by Ed Shearan, which is a beautiful song, so let's give that the runner-up position. If you own a radio, you should know this one:

    Well done @zullyscott! You get 20% of this post's reward in HP!

    NOW READER, perhaps next week is your turn? Please give me some suggestions of cover songs you would like me to try next week, and maybe you'll be the winner next time!

    See you Next Week! Ask for a song if you've read this far!

    Lyrics for "Last Christmas" by Wham!

    Last Christmas I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special
    Last Christmas I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special
    Once bitten and twice shy
    I keep my distance, but you still catch my eye
    Tell me baby, do you recognize me?
    Well, it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me
    Happy Christmas, I wrapped it up and sent it
    With a note saying "I love you", I meant it
    Now I know what a fool I've been
    But if you kissed me now, I know you'd fool me again
    Last Christmas I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special
    Last Christmas I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special
    Ooh
    Oh, oh, baby
    A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
    I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
    My God, I thought you were someone to rely on
    Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
    A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
    A man under cover, but you tore me apart
    Oh, oh now I've found a real love
    You'll never fool me again
    Last Christmas I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special, special
    Last Christmas I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to someone special
    Special
    A face on a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you mine)
    A man under cover but you tore him apart
    Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
    I'll give it to someone special
    Special
    So long

    Lyrics for "Perfect" by Ed Shearan

    I found a love, for me
    Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
    Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
    Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
    'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
    Not knowing what it was
    I will not give you up this time
    But darling, just kiss me slow
    Your heart is all I own
    And in your eyes, you're holding mine
    Baby, I'm dancing in the dark
    With you between my arms
    Barefoot on the grass
    Listening to our favourite song
    When you said you looked a mess
    I whispered underneath my breath
    But you heard it
    Darling, you look perfect tonight
    Well, I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
    She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
    I found a lover, to carry more than just my secrets
    To carry love, to carry children of our own
    We are still kids, but we're so in love
    Fighting against all odds
    I know we'll be alright this time
    Darling, just hold my hand
    Be my girl, I'll be your man
    I see my future in your eyes
    Baby, I'm dancing in the dark
    With you between my arms
    Barefoot on the grass
    Listening to our favorite song
    When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
    I don't deserve this
    Darling, you look perfect tonight
    Baby, I'm dancing in the dark
    With you between my arms
    Barefoot on the grass
    Listening to our favorite song
    I have faith in what I see
    Now I know I have met an angel in person
    And she looks perfect
    I don't deserve this
    You look perfect tonight
