Y‘all are not going to believe this, but does this sound like the shy, timid Jason Castro of American Idol fame?
Below, you will hear and see a new and improved Jason perform the Gnarls Barkley hit, “Crazy”. Listen to his soulful vocals – the timbre is so rich and full, it resonates freely throughout the room. He has obviously grown and matured as an artist and has fully internalized a much needed boost of confidence in his stellar vocal ability.
His voice sounds so open and focused now and, as a voice teacher, I fully appreciate and applaud how hard he has worked to further refine the technical projection of his voice. He loves those pure vowels now – cherishes them, actually – and he cohesively molds his voice throughout the melodic line with increased assurance and consistency.
But, it is the nucleus of his soul that I feel more than anything else in this performance. This is a sensitive and intuitive young man and I am so happy that his career is continuing to move forward, as it deservedly should!
