Standing ovations, applause, cheers — they’re all signs of appreciation for a talented person or group. But on “The Voice,” those forms of respect just won’t cut it when a singer like SandyRedd hits the stage.
Her explosive performance had two judges turning their chairs just 15 seconds into her song, but that wasn’t all. By the end, all four judges were fighting for her attention with their own offerings!
The 35-year-old Chicago native belted out Bishop Briggs’ “River” in one of the most powerful and unique voices we’ve ever heard… and her performance was only enhanced by a stage presence that knocked all the judges’ shoes off.
Both of Jennifer Hudson’s heels and one of Adam Levine’s sneakers were on the stage by the end. Kelly’s red jacket also ended up on the stage, along with Blake Shelton’s mystery beverage.
As the song continued, Jennifer and Kelly were literally dancing and singing along.
Like many other singers, SandyRedd was born into a musical family, and she credits her mom, also a singer, for encouraging her. Sadly, she passed away in 2006, when SandyRedd was in her early 20s, and it was then that she decided to pursue a career in music in her mother’s honor.
And her mother would’ve been screaming along with everybody else after her Tina Turner-esque performance.
Then again, not everyone was screaming… in fact, Kelly Clarkson, who’s usually very vocal, was all but rendered speechless! She sat there and just gawked for a while. When she did find her voice, she gushed over SandyRedd’s ability to seamlessly combine elements of soul, rock and roll, and country.
“You are like fire … I don’t know who you’re gonna pick but I don’t care,” she said. “I just can’t wait to watch you on this show.”
What a dream come true for a woman who obviously poured her entire heart and soul into this audition! And yet, we’re the lucky ones who get to witness her star power.
In the end, she chose Team Kelly, but that’s really beside the point. Trust us, you have got to see this performance to believe it! Check it out down below, and be sure to share SandyRedd’s talent!
