On Tuesday’s final of “The Voice,” Red Marlow finished fourth. That result must have been bittersweet for this 40-year-old singer/songwriter from Dickson, Tennessee. However, he could take comfort in the fact that he was the only one of the top four to write the original song performed on Monday’s final. His tune, “I Pray,” tells a powerful tale of praying after personal struggles.
By noon Tuesday, it ranked third in sales on the iTunes top 10. As part of the promotional push for the final four, Marlow made a video version of “I Pray” which you can watch above. That Marlow did so well with this soulful song is not surprising given the success he had on the fourth live show with “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” His rendition of this 1995 eulogic ballad by Vince Gill ranked as your favorite among all of Marlow’s performances on season 13 of “The Voice.”
