Every once in a while a voice comes around that is truly inspiring. A voice that can generate emotion from thousands of people because of the sheer beauty of the sound.
A few years ago, for the inaugural season of X Factor USA, there was a 42-year-old single mother of two who simply killed (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman. Her name is Stacy Francis and when the judges heard her delivery of the Aretha Franklin classic, they could not contain themselves.
In this short interview clip, Stacy speaks about her audition. Following her comments is footage from that performance.
When she had finished her audition the judges did not hesitate…they gave her a standing ovation. When it was his turn to vote, Simon Cowell told Stacy, “I’ve done this a long, long time. That was one of the best auditions I have ever heard in my life. You did more than sing it, you believed in it. Loved it, loved it, loved it.”
And, yes, Simon, we can see (and hear) why.
Simply an outstanding rendition of a fantastic song.
