Young Trevin Hunte faltered a bit, I thought, and I was upset for him. And, from the look on his face, he knew that his performance was not as solid as it could have been.
However, there is no denying this fact: this young man has a God-given vocal gift, one which is truly superlative in substance and style.
Cassadee Pope sang beautifully and her clear soprano voice is really a joy to hear. It is refreshing – she never over-sings, just feels her music, allowing the passion to dictate how the musical line will be vocalized.
Terry McDermott’s version of “Let It Be” was just outstanding. He really elevated his vocal style I thought – literally and figuratively. He took many vocal risks and he was well-prepared for those risks. And that head voice was clear and centred and was a prominent vocal element throughout this performance.
However, the performance of the night for me was Nicholas David’s gorgeous, heartfelt version of Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful”..
Time stopped when I heard him sing this song – it took my breath away. HIs voice was so strong and powerful and the performance so genuine. And, by the way, he has excellent technical skills. Excellent.
So, in just a couple of hours or so, one singer will leave The Voice, while the remaining three singers will move on to the Finale next week.
I think this will be the end of the road for Trevin tonight. However, this will definitely not be the end of the road in terms of the future of his vocal career. This is a huge stepping stone – a platform from which he can continue to build and hone his future in the music business.
