Adam Lambert gifts his fans his cover of Cher’s “Believe”

“It’s been a year since I performed this cover live for @cher. A lot of you have mentioned wanting a studio recording– so here’s a little holiday [gift] from me to you,” Adam tweeted.  “Thank you for being the most loyal & dedicated fans this queen could ask for.”

“Believe” is a song that’s been a part of Adam’s life for years: When he was on American Idol, he sang “Believe” during the Hollywood Rounds.

When Cher heard Adam’s performance a year ago, she tweeted, “Tried 2 write Feelings About Adam Lambert Singing Believe In Words, but Cant seem 2. When Your senses are Overwhelmed All Can you feel [is] with your [heart].”
