Archives For Singing
Going into the Show I knew who the winner would be. All four contestants were great. But unfortunately none of them have the liveliness and depth that the first Winner of “The Rising Star” has. Congratulations to this years winner Jesse Kinch.
Not only were his vocals totally on key throughout both of his performances, he smartly picked two songs that were the right songs. He sang them, loud, proud, and strong. Both songs had depth and left you wishing there was more time to listen to just him.
This doesn’t mean that Jesse’s fellow contestants didn’t do a great job.
Audrey Kate Geiger did a wonderful job. Like her fellow contestants, Austin French and Dana Williams, they all sang songs that were a little slow-moving. You have such a short amount of time to impress the at home judges. When the songs move slowly, it cuts into the time they have to get the feel of the singer and how they fit the song.
Additionally, some of the voters may not have been as familiar with one of the songs and that too made a difference. See my tweets below.
I wish each of the contestants much luck and hope that they will all continue pursuing their dreams. May they take all that they have learned and sharpen their skills. Who knows what might happen.
I enjoyed watching everyone this season. Can’t wait until the next one.
