Boyce Avenue Covers Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’

What is it about Katy Perry's songs that they sound better when sung by a man?

After the hit Darren Criss cover of “Teenage Dream” on Glee, the best-selling Glee track on iTunes ever, Boyce Avenue featuring David Choi rendered another cool male version of a Katy Perry song. It’s the inspirational hit–“Firework”–and it made me go oh oh oh!

Boyce Avenue is a Puerto Rican band composed of acoustic-singing brothers Alejandro, Fabian and Daniel Manzano. David Choi, on the other hand, is a Korean-American who is also a YouTube sensation.

Firework Lyrics:

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you?

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, oh oh oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go, oh
You’re gonna leave ’em falling down

You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you’re reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it’s time, you’ll know

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go, oh
You’re gonna leave ’em falling down

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go, oh
You’re gonna leave ’em falling down

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

    BOYCE AVENUE is sensational acoustic band, its smashing, smexxi male A-band. I love all the song they compose and they revive. I REALLY WISH I SEE THEM LIVE. The singer Alejandro have a nice voice. every night I listen to their album AND MAKE ME UNDERSTAND WHATS THE SONG IS ALL ABOUT cuz normally i just sing song, like given “Firework” I just sing that but i dont really get it. Boyce Avenue help me understood the song. I stand and clap my hands for you. SA U.K naman ulit kayo mag concert, please.

    Boyce Avenue composes their own songs as well.. They do great covers and that’s what make them popular in Youtube.. Just so you know..
