He performed the song at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, and it was well-received by the crowd, as well as with his YouTube viewers. Ironically enough, his hometown is Paris, France.
Menna truly captures the emotion behind the Backstreet Boys ballad "I Want It That Way," and is able to give it his own, unique twist thanks to his acoustic guitar and his rich, baritone voice. His dynamic acoustic performance of the tune ought to be enjoyed for its beauty and its simplicity.
Equally impressive are his versions of The Calling's "Wherever You Will Go," Oasis' "Wonderwall" and Enrique Iglesias' "Hero," as well as his original recordings.
The Verdict
Overall, Youri Menna is delightful on his rendition of "I Want It That Way." The Backstreet Boys would approve of this bravura version. Menna's music is recommended for fans of pop-rock and acoustic music. This song earns an A rating.
