Corey Kent White sings ‘When I See You Smile’ on The Voice 2015 Top 8 (VIDEO)
This is probably Corey’s best vocal, and I’m genuinely impressed by the restraint of the arrangement. It actually does sound like a country song now, whereas it would have been easy to stick to the old fashioned arrangement of the original, a la Hannah’s performance, and end up delivering a performance that, while technically proficient, sounds dated and old. I don’t know if this will be enough to get Corey through to next week, considering he seems to be fighting to be heard over the band during the verses, but I thought he showed real fire here. I didn’t know he had this level of passion and grit in him. Overall, I liked it.
