Alexa Ray Joel in 2013 Gap Back to Blue ad


Alexa Ray Joel covers her father's hit song, "Just the Way You Are," in Gap's new Back to the Blue campaign. The song was recorded on Billy Joel's album, The Stranger, in 1977. Joel wrote the song with his first wife, Elizabeth Weber. In this video, Alexa is wearing her father's ring and Gap denim in the ad. She's also playing on the exact same type of piano used to record the original version of the song. The video was directed by Danny Clinch. A behind the scenes video can be found here.

The commercial is called BacktoBlue. Alexa sounds good. Gap needs to release the full audio for the song. Take a look:
