'The Voice': CammWess sings Kacey Musgraves' 'Rainbow' and fans agree with Legend about his honey butter voice
He dedicated his Top 9 performance to honor his cousin who inspite of dealing with a lot through her illness has a 'rainbow hanging over her' always
CammWess from coach John Legend's team was one of the artistes to perform in the Top 9 episode on 'The Voice' on Monday night.
Coach Legend helped his team member rehearse remotely. He praised CammWess for his tone and also advised him to change the key a little in order for his voice to shine through in the performance.
CammWess shared his joy of being recognized and expressed his gratitude for being celebrated by the local bowling alley and the news stations in his town of Blythewood, South Carolina.
For the performance, he chose to sing 'Rainbow' by country artiste Kacey Musgraves and mentioned that he's dedicating this performance to his ailing young cousin. The purpose of choosing this particular song was that even though her cousin is dealing with a lot with her illness, she always has a "rainbow hanging over her".
His performance was introduced by his biggest fan named Brian from York, Pennsylvania.
CammWess's voice sounded like waves and he put an R&B twist to this country song, making it his own. His coach Legend waxed poetic about him after the performance.
"It was stunning, it was emotional, you took us on a journey. I keep saying this but your voice is indeed honey butter," said Legend before urging America to vote for the young artiste.
"He is really good. I mean Reeeeally good. I think he will win. I have 5 favorites. The math will never add up for me. I think CammWess is at the top after last week and tonight," wrote a fan on Twitter after the performance.
Another emotional fan wrote, "!!! @CammWess you just made me cry... brb going to rewatch all of your performances; thank u for sharing your voice with the world"
"Hands down the best performance of the night. CammWess gave me goosebumps and all the feels. Damn, the boy can sing!" read another tweet by a fan. CammWess also managed to convert a non-fan into one with his performance tonight and earned their votes.
"@NBCTheVoice so tonight was really crazy for me. My previous favorites didn’t quite do it for me. Instead, @CammWess and @allegramiles stole my votes with their beautiful performances! Good for you guys!!" read the tweet.
'The Voice' returns tomorrow night (May 12) on NBC and the Top 5 contestants of the season will be revealed on the episode.
