Video Games Live Vocalist And ‘Zircon’ Put Their Stamp On Paul McCartney’s Destiny Song

Back around Destiny’s launch, we shared with you the song that Sir Paul McCartney wrote for the game’s credits. Now, two musicians who are no strangers to gaming, put their own spin on “Hope for the Future.”

Jillian Aversa is a vocalist who has appeared with Tommy Tallarico’s Video Games Live and on the soundtracks for Halo, God of War, Civilization, and more. Her husband is composer Andrew Aversa (whom you might know as “zircon”). He’s worked on soundtracks including Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Soul Calibur V, as well as appearing in the vast OverClocked REmix archives multiple times.

In the video above, you’ll not only hear Jillian Aversa, but you’ll see her cosplay work. She’s created costumes for each of Destiny’s three classes: Titan, Hunter, and Warlock. Her YouTube channel also includes a tribute to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, her work with Video Games Live, and a sampling of her music you’ve probably heard in games you’ve played.
