Did You See This Performance?

Written by scoopsnews on May 15, 2017 – 9:00 pm -

Did you watch this? Everyone wondered what Chris Blue would sing.
Shari Weiss, NBC , said “Interestingly, though, for tonight’s semifinals, he went in a very different direction from last week. With mentoring from his coach Alicia Keys, Blue opted to perform “Take Me To The King,” a Grammy-nominated contemporary gospel song from Tamela Mann.”
Way to go Chris Blue!
To God be the Glory!

Jordan Smith Winner Of The Voice

In three months’ time, Jordan Smith has evolved from an unknown collegian singing at a small liberal arts school to a nationally known pop artist expected to be crowned winner of “The Voice” tonight.

“It’s an amazing thing to watch when you think about it,” says Ron Brendel, associate professor of music at Lee University. “Here’s a 21-year-old kid from Harlan, Ky., that nobody knew who he was and now he’s bumped Adele out of No. 1 on the iTunes chart. The producers at ‘The Voice’ have really created a phenomenon.

“But the bottom line is: He’s just gifted. You can’t teach all that stuff that is just stylistically in him.”

Brendel should know. He has been Smith’s voice teacher at Lee University for 2 1/2 years, helping Smith harness the power of the high notes that have made him famous.

“If he wins, I’m going to move to Los Angeles,” Brendel jokes.

On a serious note, though, he calls Smith “the most innately gifted student I’ve ever dealt with, and I’ve been in higher education for 25 years.”

Smith’s high register, which in his younger years made him the brunt of jokes and teasing, is now his claim to fame. That near-three-octave range is what has separated him from this season’s contestants as much as his backstory of the self-esteem issues it caused.

Lee junior Courtney Blackwell, who is in the Lee Singers with Smith, isn’t surprised at his success on NBC’s talent show.

“Ever since I heard him sing, I wondered why he had not been on TV; more people should hear his voice. He never messes up,” she says.

“Jordan has one of those voices that, even if you haven’t heard him sing, you hear other people talking about his singing,” says Alex Ubieran, a senior at Lee. “He got in Lee Singers before I did, so I was constantly hearing about him. That was one of the draws of joining Singers to me, because they had people like Jordan.”

As a studio instructor at Lee, Brendel says he taught Smith vocal technique through classical music literature. He trained the singer in breathing technique, tone production, intonation — basic fundamentals that enable a singer to cross over into any genre. Just watch Smith’s video of last Monday’s iTunes chart-topping performance of Queen’s “Somebody to Love” to see proof it works.
