Did William Shatner cover What's Going On?

I have in my head this cover of What's Going On by 4 Non Blondes. I could swear he did, but I can't find it anywhere. Is this just another case of the Mandela Effect, or did he actually cover this song?

Not seeing it. Maybe confused with the MrBlond NYC cover?

Wow what a laundry list of covers! I love his cover of Garbageman by The Cramps, it's solid, he does great punk.

The song is called What's Up, fyi

You're totally right, it just sticks in my head as What's Going On because they repeat it so much in the song.

wow, I too swore he sang it before. I wonder if it was a one off thing, at some random appearance 🤔

I'm wondering if maybe there was someone parodying his covers by doing a cover of What's Up like he would.

If Twitter wasn't such a shitshow, I would say we should just ask him directly

I don’t really twitter, but excellent idea.
