Street Performer Soulful Cover ‘Islands In The Stream’ By Dolly Parton And Kenny Rogers

An incredibly talented young woman, Allie Sherlock, put on a dazzling and soulful performance of “Islands in the Stream” by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.

Dolly Parton, in a career that has spanned decades, has starred in films, and on television and has produced dozens of classic, beloved hit songs. Tunes like “9 to 5,” “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You” are iconic Dolly Parton songs. 

In addition to her many film roles and catchy, upbeat songs like “9 to 5,” Dolly is well-known for her many collaborations with the late Kenny Rogers. Like Dolly, Kenny was also a multi-talented performer, appearing in films and on television and producing music. Likely, when one thinks of Dolly and Kenny singing together, there is one song that immediately comes to mind: “Islands in the Stream.”

In a clip posted on YouTube, Allie Sherlock performed “Islands in the Streams,” on the side of the street for dozens of passing citizens. Topping a song from two legends is never going to happen. The best that anyone could hope to do with that song is to make it their own, which Allie manages to do.

“Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong?

Allie’s unique and distinctive voice produces a thoroughly enjoyable version of the song made famous by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. Allie, once again, shows that she is immensely talented with her cover of “Islands in the Stream.” 

Her version could be listened to endlessly on repeat without ever tiring of it. Those partial to the original can still enjoy this cover because she doesn’t try to outdo Dolly and Kenny, which is an impossible task. 

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
