C’mon! You know you want to press the play button on the video featured above. I have already played it several times. It’s that beautiful.
Yesterday evening, Phillip Phillips gave a wonderful rendition of the song, “Home”. If he wins, it will be released as a single but part of me is thinking that it will be released whether he wins or not. It’s just that good!
The imperfections in Phillips’ voice worked to great advantage with this number. I loved the ethereal quality in his voice mixed in with the gritty vocals. It added a sense of longing, yearning, nostalgia that perfectly complimented the emotional aspect of the song.
This has to be the best song written for an Idol since “Time Of Your Life” for Season 7 winner, David Cook. I still hear this song on the radio and never tire of it.
I think that Phillip’s “Home” song will be just as successful. Win or lose, he can’t go wrong with this number.
Check out the longer Studio Version below. Yummy!
