Additional tunes on the album include “Cry Me A River,” “You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You,” “Georgia On My Mind” and “Baby (You’ve Got What It Takes)” which was performed with Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. The title song is a cover of the Van Morrison gem “Crazy Love.” The CD closes out with a haunting version of “Stardust” which is performed with the acapella group Naturally 7. The album was produced by David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica.
