During Monday’s live episode of “The Voice” Season 15, country artist Chris Kroeze of Team Blake Shelton performed “Let It Be” for America’s votes. This week’s theme was “Dedications,” so Chris announced that he was dedicating his performance to missing Barron, Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs. Do you think Chris will advance to next week’s Top 11?

“I love that version of it,” said rival coach Adam Levine. “You really did do your own thing with it, which is awesome. It’s hard to do with a Beatles song, so classic. I love your voice, man. I’m so jealous of that ability you have to scream with that rasp. I always just get jealous. So I’m jealous of you, which I think is a good sign. It was just awesome, man. Really, really heartfelt.”
Blake added, “Hey Chris, it’s a testament to your work ethic and how badly you want this, because to take it from where we left it in our rehearsal to where you did tonight, I know how much work you put into that and how you made it your own. And what a great thing it is that you dedicated the song to Barron. Hopefully this tonight will have a happy ending and that little 13-year-old girl will be found.”
Prior to this performance of “Let It Be,” Chris sang “Pride and Joy” in the blind auditions, “Back in the High Life Again” in the battles, “Burning House” in the knockouts and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” in the Top 26.
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson had this to say about the live performance: “Chris Kroeze is kicking things off for Team Blake, dedicating ‘Let it Be’ to an abducted 13-year old girl named Jayme Closs from his hometown of Barron, Wisconsin. With his hair pulled back, Chris subtly belts out the classic Beatles tune. The performance is understated, but effective with room for his guitar solo in the middle. I don’t know if it was the ‘moment’ he was going for, but it was definitely good enough to keep him safe. I also love that he brought awareness to Jayme.”
