Got Something to Add?
Amber reminds me of the day when singers took the time to study their craft and their delivery. She's a true the artisan among the group. Too bad the adolescents who do most of the voting can't get that.
I like the fact that she chose a Streisand song. Classy! But I still feel that her singing, especially in the lower registers, lacks control and feels undeveloped. Her regal gorgeous figure belies the fact that at times she sounds like a precocious little girl singing a grown up song. You need a very mature voice to sing a song about "rest of your life". At her age and even younger, Paris Bennett, Fantasia and Jordin Sparks were a lot more vocally convincing. Again, people (judges) are in love with the potential in Amber as opposed what's in front of them.
Fantasia put this song in the IDOL Vault. I remember when she performed this song on "Big Band Week"
I was really starting to forget why I was an Amber fan until tonight; I just love her when she takes her time and works in that jazz sensibility. That full bodied, warm tone of her's really came through (it was missing in her first performance). She needs to find a way to translate all of this into uptempo and pop tracks. Really amazing!
Incredible rendition. Amber is so consistent in her performances. A natural born singer. Only 19 and handling the classics like a seasoned pro.
This is my favorite Barbra Streisand song. She is so good at these type of songs. She is eloquent and classy. I love this version.
Lovely, just lovely. For such a young girl she sure has remarkable control and vocal excellence. Amazingly she is from Houston, just like Beyonce. I hope she makes it to the finals.
