Mark Andrew sings ‘Soulshine’ and ‘I Wanna Be Like You’ on American Idol XIV (VIDEO)

Mark Andrew sang ‘Soulshine’ and ‘I Wanna Be Like You’ on American Idol XIV Season 14 in Minneapolis, MN on Wednesday, January 21, 2015.

Mark Andrew was a former contestant on The Voice. He made it to Team Shakira after his blind audition but was eliminated in the Battle Round.

From our live blog:

In his video package, Mark breaks down when noting that this is his last chance at making it in music. At the very least, it’s his last chance for the show, as he’s 29. He’s the foreman for his family’s construction business, but he wants to provide better for his family. He loves music, and wants this to be his career.

He sings a gorgeous version of “Soulshine,” but Keith wants to hear something else. So he decides to sing a swinging version of “I Wanna Be Like You” from The Jungle Book, and it’s outstanding! So much personality, and a stunning tone. I love this guy. The best of the night, in my opinion.
