The Hero recently posted a video to her Instagram where she gave Rihanna’s “Higher” the acoustic treatment backstage at one of her shows. This is not an easy song to cover, but from the start of “so pardon if I’m impolite, I just really need your a** with me” it’s clear she has the chops to do so.

Check out her rendition below:
