Koryn Hawthorne sings ‘Oh Mary Don’t You Weep’ on The Voice 2015 Semi-Final (VIDEO)
Despite the age of the song, it’s a pretty brilliant choice, since it sounds a bit similar to “Make It Rain”, allowing her to sort of reprise the song without reprising it. I think this was nearly as good as “Make It Rain,” actually, as it had a more heightened sense of drama. She just digs into this vocal with all of her power, resulting in her most mature performance of the season. She just felt like a total star here. She showed sides to her vocal that I didn’t even know were there, and she absolutely deserved her standing ovation at the end. Just outstanding.
