Monday night on “The Voice,” country singer Kaleb Lee represented Team Kelly Clarkson during the live Top 8 episode of Season 14. For this all-important semifinals show, Kaleb decided to take on the traditional song “It Is Well with My Soul” after being surprised by his family’s appearance at rehearsal. Do YOU think that Kaleb will advance to the Season 14 finale of NBC’s reality TV show? Watch “The Voice” performance video above.
After his emotional performance, Kelly jumped up to her feet and raved, “[Your family’s] gotta be so proud of you, you just killed it, man. Literally this guy, y’all, Kaleb has grown so much, even from the blinds. He just wasn’t even doing music at all and he just shows up and it’s like his gift and it’s his purpose. You’ve just exponentially grown so much on this show. This was the perfect time for this song. You’ve been wanting to do this song the whole time you’ve been here. It was so beautiful. It was so perfect.”
Kaleb’s other performances on “The Voice” so far have included “Never Wanted Nothing More,” “Don’t Do Me Like That,” “Free,” “You Don’t Even Know Who I Am,” “Die a Happy Man,” “Amazed,” “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” and “Boondocks.” How does “It Is Well with My Soul” stack up to Kaleb’s other songs? Let us know down in the comments section.
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger John Benutty summarized, “Unlike his recent performances where I felt like he was trying to force a personality, tonight’s performance is a much-needed authentic one from Kaleb. It’s by far his most affecting performance of the season and I think it’ll resonate with his core audience, but also strike a chord with new fans as well. It could be exactly what he needed to propel himself into next week’s final.”
