Oh yes! You can always count on David Cook to showcase outstanding vocals via his rock persona.
This video, however, shows a restrained, pure vocal delivery from the David.. His vocals are brimming with head voice – pitch perfect and centered. He easily vocalizes from his true tenor range into the counter-tenor range, highlighting the continuity and strength of his technical skills.
This is a beautiful and sensitive performance by David, emphasizing the depth and dimension of his artistry.
And, I love, love LOVE the relaxation of his jaw! That’s how it’s done. You show ’em David!
The song, “From Here To Zero” was given a premiere performance by David at the the Foundation Room in Las Vegas on April 27, 2012.
It has yet to be released but I am certain that once it is, it will be warmly embraced by his legions of fans.
I would also like to send out special kudos to his wonderful musicians, especially the back-up singer, Andy Skib, on the left who beautifully mirrored David’s gentle head voice with impeccable harmonies.
This performance made me realize what is missing from all the singing competitions to date. Restrained, free vocals in an acoustic environment. This is what singing is all about.
Yes, we need the variety, but would it be so awful to have a theme devoted to acoustic song arrangements? Really?
Kudos David! As always, you never, ever fail to impress me with your splendid and refined artistry.
