Ne-Yo to sing alternate version of ‘One Shining Moment’

-

CBS and the NCAA have finally announced the changes that will be made to the One Shining Moment finale of the NCAA Tournament, and it is that R&B singer Ne-Yo will sing an alternate version of Luther Vandross’ classic.

Per Ralph D. Russo of the AP, Ne-Yo’s version will be sung on the TruTV and TNT broadcasts of the finale while Vandross’ will be used on that of TBS.

To be honest, as a lifelong NCAA Tournament fan, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this. The Luther Vandross version has been a staple for over a decade and while I understand the need to keep the concept fresh and new, there’s just something iconic about his voice singing this particular song.

Nothing against Ne-Yo, but it’s certainly going to be interesting to see how his version matches up with a true classic in Vandross’.
