‘The Voice’ Blinds Day 2 – A Whole Lotta Soul
The Voice entered its second day of blind auditions and it was even better than the premiere. There were some seriously talented singers in this batch and a whole lot of soul and bluesy vibes to be had.
Woo! This guy can sing like a soulful songbird. He’s like a modern day Marvin Gaye. He sang the Bee Gee’s To Love Somebody and killed it. Blake and Adam turned around but he chose team Adam which might have been a mistake. I don’t know, but Blake might have been a better choice.
Young Jaclyn is only 16-years-old, but you wouldn’t know it hearing her sing. Her voice is angelic, unreal, and may win this show. Like for serious. She sang Elvis’ I Can’t Help Falling In Love in a way I’ve never heard. She reminds me of Evie Clair from AGT or Mazzie Starr from when I was a teenager. She picked Alicia which is 100% the right decision.
Molly brought the country vibes to the stage with her version of Patty Griffin’s Heavenly Day. She sprinkled in plenty of soul into her country. She picked team Kelly over team Blake, which might not be the best decision. It’s hard to say because we really don’t know how well she coaches yet.
This hunk of cute sang Loggins & Messina’s Danny’s Song ably. He is a former boy band guy and you can tell. Though he’s fine and a good singer I don’t see him going very far. He too picked Kelly and for him it seems like a better fit.
This was my favorite performance of the night. Maybe it’s because it brought some much needed energy to the stage after several ballads, but his soulful, gravelly voice and bluesy attack was something else. He chose Blake to be his coach and that will get him far.
