Smooth jazz saxophonist Boney James and current American Idol Top 3 finalist Syesha Mercado have joined forces to release a new version of �Gonna Get It� exclusively on iTunes. The song, written by Boney and Rahsaan Patterson, originally appeared on James' current CD Shine and was sung by Faith Evans.
The new version of �Gonna Get It� � which you also hear at Boney�s MySpace page � pairs him with the last woman standing on American Idol. James, whose current smooth jazz single is the former No. 1 hit �Let It Go,� says that the first time he saw the 21-year-old Mercado perform, he was incredibly impressed. He added that �Gonna Get It� seemed like a perfect fit for her, and he�s really proud of how well she�s doing on American Idol.
Mercado, David Cook and David Archuleta will perform on the FOX reality series on May 13, and one will be voted off on May 14.
