Christopher Cross - Sailing, remade by R&B singer Avant.

In July of 1980 Christopher Cross dominated the pop charts with his first (of two) number 1 hits "Sailing". In 2008 a man who looked like him would never get a record deal, let alone have a number one hit. But in 1980 talent trumped looks. Here is a live performance of his hit mega-hit "Sailing" during his pop peak in 1980.

Recently R&B singer Avant remade the song. Here is his version.

I think both are really good, the o.g. wins, but seriously Avant did a great job!
