Monday, December 3 on “The Voice,” Sarah Grace sang “Amazing Grace” for Team Kelly Clarkson during the Top 10 performance episode. Sarah took on one of the biggest risks in “Voice” history by changing up “Amazing Grace” so that it sounded like a bluesy rendition of “House of the Rising Son.” Do you think this performance was good enough for Sarah to advance to next week’s Top 8 show for Team Kelly? Read the coaches’ comments below.
Jennifer Hudson: “Sarah Grace, first of all, I love how in the midst of you singing that song you still found time to put your horn back down in the right place and did not miss a single note. I notice things like that. That was amazing. I love how this just displays your confidence. To be able to take ‘Amazing Grace’ and then make it your own and do something else different with it and take the chance, and then to use this moment to display all of your talents, that was extremely smart. That was beautiful.”
Kelly Clarkson: “I love, love, love your voice. You remind me of so many different artists that I grew up with, that I love. I just think it’s so amazing, especially in this competition, where so many young people have so much soul to them. You have just a special level of not only soul but you’re a really, really intelligent musician, vocalist, all of it. You’re just really, really rad, man. I look up to you. Even in rehearsals I’m like, I just learned something. You’re just an incredible individual and I’m very proud of you. This is an insanely cool version of ‘Amazing Grace.’ It’s my favorite one I’ve ever heard.”
Prior to this performance of “Amazing Grace,” Sarah sang “Ball and Chain” during the blind auditions, “No Roots” during the battles, “I’d Rather Go Blind” during the knockouts, “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby” during Top 26 week, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” during Top 13 week and “Dog Days Are Over” during Top 11 week.
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson had this to say about the live performance: “Hoping not to offend the audience by changing up a classic, she emerges showing off her bluesy vocals beautifully. She’s giving me vibes of the great Eva Cassidy and she sounds better than ever. Sarah then picks up the trumpet and shows off a little jazz instrumental before belting out the climax of the song. Bravo! This was her best performance of the season by far.”
