Koryn Hawthorne sings ‘Dream On’ on The Voice 2015 Top 6 (VIDEO)
This was a rare time where I noticed a strangely distraction vibrato in Koryn’s voice. Normally, her tone is much more even and confident than it is here. Of course, I say that, but then she immediately launches into the chorus again, and this just comes ALIVE. This could be the most an artist has surprised me in the entire competition. Instead of trying to be a rock singer, she made the song work for her, skipping over Tyler’s ear-piercing high notes and digging deeper with her smooth, R&B tone by delivering something that sounds almost like gospel. I was genuinely impressed by this, even though I’d gladly make a donation to the Please Let’s Never Hear This Song On A Singing Show Again fund.
