We all have days that are super boring so we surf the web for something to keep us occupied. For some reason, I always seem to gravitate toward recaps of singing competitions. From American Idol screw ups to The Voice's finale performance, I'm always on the hunt for unique singers that will give any onlooker the chills. If you're looking for some sweet serenades to tickle your ears, look no further. I have listed my top 10 favorite singing YouTube videos. *Side note* Remember when I wrote that post on how to get rid of your Monday blues? Welp, music was totally on that list!
10. Ryan O'Shaughnessy - No Name
This song is so adorbs, it nestled perfectly in the number 10 slot.
9. Michael Collings - Fast Car
I'm always a fan of people who sound totally differently than what I expect. I love the original by Tracy Chapman but this acoustic spin is breath taking!
8. James Arthur - Young
The first time I saw this performance, I couldn't help but tear up. There is just so much raw passion wrapped up inside this guy. You could feel every word.
7. Jamie Archer - Sex On Fire
His vibe. His stage presence. His voice. Jamie reminds me of the young Lenny Kravitz. I just love his energy and how he was able to engage the crowd and how was able to even get Simon Cowell to sing along!
6. Panda Ross - Bring It On Home
I absolutely loved Panda's performance. She was as sweet as pie and that smooth baritone voice was certainly a soulful treat. How could you not love her?
5. Alice Fredenham - My Funny Valentine
Have you ever seen a flower bloom right in front of you? You will when you see this performance. When the music comes on and Alice opens her mouth, she loses herself in another world.
4. Jeff Gutt - Hallelujah
I love that Jeffery has such a gritty and grungy voice, it worked so perfectly for this piece. Ugh, I just can't get enough of this video AND that note at the end? What else needs to be said?
3. Taylor Phelan - Sweater Weather
One of my favorite songs by The Neighbourhood. Taylor had such an amazing performance and I love the little head nod at the 1:00 minute mark and the heel clicking at the 1:17 minute mark. This guy is too funky!
2. Jai Waetford - Different Worlds
This little cutie stole my heart and the show! His voice was so innocent but confident. It's easy to see why he slid in the number 2 spot.
1. La'Porsha Renae - Diamonds
Her vocal control is RIDICULOUS!!!! Her riffs are flawless. I can never watch this video just once.
Hopefully you guys have enjoyed this list I've put together! This music mix should brighten any blue mood and occupy a good chunk of time if you're having a slow day. Let me know which songs/videos are your favorite!
