On the June 15 episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Tessa took to the stage at The Underground to perform the beautiful ballad “All I Need Is to Hold Your Hand” and fans were immediately taken with the tune and wanted to know where it could be purchased!
“For those asking,” tweeted Tessa’s portrayer, Cait Fairbanks, “the song I performed on Y&R is a song a wrote with two of my dopest friends, Mia Minichiello and Matias Mora. It’s not available on any streaming services or iTunes, etc! But maybe one day!”
But for those of you who still want to listen to the song again and again, while you can’t buy a download of it, you can at least enjoy this video of her Y&R performance, even if it does go from acoustic to a full rendition and then has some actual dialogue over it at the end. Sorry, it’s the best that's available right now!
The musically-inclined Fairbanks has appeared on stage in the musicals 13 and Heathers The Musical before joining Y&R as Tessa, so her singing chops on the soap are the genuine article. She’s also a talented singer and songwriter, having written and performed her own music for years, including two songs she uploaded to her YouTube channel, “Echoes” and “Digging My Own Grave.”
While we can’t wait to hear what Fairbanks will sing next on Y&R, we also hope that the soap makes her songs available for download eventually because there are a lot of fans who would love to listen to them. And of course, as soon as that happens, we'll be sure to let you know!
