Cas Haley: Walking On The Moon

Monday is reserved for cover songs and here is a pleasant surprise from the second season of “America’s Got Talent.” Cas Haley doing the Police number “Walking on the Moon.” Haley placed second that season in the finals.

From Arlington, Texas, Haley’s got swing in his strings as he is the nephew of rock legend Bill Haley. The younger Haley currently plays both acoustic and electric guitar in a band called Woodbelly. His debut, a self-titled album, charted at #8 on Billboard’s album charts. Although he is an unlikely looking reggae musician, it is a genre that he prefers – and does very well – despite the lack of dreadlocks.

This is a great version of “Walking on the Moon,” and I agree with judge Piers Morgan when he said, “I’ve heard Sting at a private club singing that song a cappella that you did and he has an amazing voice and you actually sang it better than Sting.” Listen to the Police’s version of this and decide which one you like better.
