Braiden Sunshine Sings ‘Amazing Grace’ on The Voice 9 (VIDEO)
Braiden Sunshine sang “Amazing Grace” on The Voice 9 Semi-Final for Team Gwen Stefani on Monday, December 7, 2015!
This is a pretty vocal, but thoroughly unspectacular, and it’s indicative of a problem that it’s too late to fix: we have absolutely no sense of who Braiden is as an artist. Seriously, what kind of album would he make? He’s done Michael Buble style big band numbers, classic rock tracks, modern rock rearrangements, acoustic songs, and now a gospel song that’s virtually been around since time immemorial. I have no idea who Braiden is, and I’d go as far as to argue that he’s been one of the most various artists in the history of this show, jumping all over the map. I put that mostly on Gwen, for not helping him hone his instincts. You can try everything, sure, but it has to fit into a singular vision of artistry. I like Braiden, and think he’s taken a lot of undeserved flack over this season. He’s consistently impressed me with how mature and seasoned he is as an artist at such a young age. But, with that having been said, this wasn’t a semifinal performance, in my opinion. Watch the performance video below:
