Top 7 Idols SA: Drakensburg Choir Drowns Voices

2012-08-27 07:19

This week Kurt and crew were on leave as backup singers so the Drakensburg Boys Choir had to step in to try and save the day. The boys were okay but I strongly feel that they drowned some of the contestants’ voices with their singing. The usual suspects like Dominic where outshone by them.

Monde took on “Purple Rain” by Prince which is an emotional song. A part of me felt like Monde didn’t connect with that song on an emotional level which is a key aspect of that song. Generally, he has a good voice. The highlight of the performance was towards the end with that vibration of the ligamentous edges of the vocal cords which he did.  He took me back to one of my favourite artist in SA, the late Nana Coyote with that falsetto when he sang “Take Your Love and Keep it”. If Monde could do me a favour and sing that song I would be eternally grateful because I think it would show off his voice nicely with this timeless song.

Can we please send Dominic home? This competition is out of his depth.
