‘American Idol’ Finalist Pia Toscano Releases Stunning Rendition Of Shawn Mendes’ ‘In My Blood’ - Hollywood Life

Crafting a good cover song is no easy feat. An artist must give someone else’s creative vision justice, while also putting their own spin on it. Pia Toscano, 29, has the formula down to a science. The singer and former American Idol finalist has covered a number of soulful artists ranging from Sam Smith, to James Arthur, so it only made sense for her next cover to be from another powerhouse vocalist & ballad writing pro – Shawn Mendes.

“I cut the song a while ago, but wanted to wait for the right time to release it,” Pia told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about the Jared Lee and Martin Estrada produced track. “With everything that’s happening in the world, now felt like the right time,” she added. Pia went on to explain that she chose to cover a song from Shawn Mendes for a reason. The singer, who believes music can be a “temporary relief from pain,” instantly fell in love with the track, admitting, “It hit me to the core.” Pia also shared that, like many, she faces anxiety, and music is a means of getting through that. “Mind over matter was the message of this song for me,” she said.
