Ariana Grande Joins Jason Robert Brown for ‘Last Five Years’ Cover

Grammy winner covered gorgeous ballad “Still Hurting” from the Broadway show

On Monday night, Ariana Grande joined composer Jason Robert Brown (13The Last Five Years) for a special virtual concert to benefit the staff and musicians of famed Manhattan venue SubCulture. The intimate theater is currently shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In between live-tweeting the show, Grande popped in to do a remote cover of “Still Hurting” from Brown’s famed musical The Last Five Years. The show tells the tale of a couple falling in love and eventually divorcing — from both perspectives.

“Still Hurting” is the opening ballad from the perspective of Cathy, who is telling the tale of their famed romance in reverse chronological order. With Brown on piano, Grande gave a moving, passionate performance of the tune.
