Angelic! Cassandra Coleman Is A Voice The World Has Never Heard! - American Idol 2021

Cassandra Coleman walked into the American Idol audition ready to put her fears and insecurities aside and pursue her life-long dream of singing and performing, and boy...did she deliver! According to Lionel Richie, Cassandra’s performance was as “angelic as it’s gonna get.” Luke Bryan tells Cassandra she’s “a new voice the world has never heard before.” Lionel wants Cassandra to remember this one thing: Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Will Cassandra take Lionel’s words of wisdom to heart going into Hollywood Week?

    Maybe a thief stole your heart Or maybe we just drifted apart I remember driving In my daddy's car to the airfield Blanket on the hood, backs against the windshield Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust That paradise is buried in the dust If I go on With you by my side Can it be The way it was When we met Did you forget all about those golden nights? (The way it was) All of our plans have fallen through Sometimes a dream, it don't come true Darling! Darling! If we go on Can it be (can it be) The way it was When we met Did you forget all about them golden nights?

  35. Kat Dorrough Music

    Kat Dorrough Music23 soat oldin

    Performing in public and singing into your phone in your bedroom or your car with zero eyes on you are completely different scenarios. She didn’t say she doesn’t record. She was asked where she performs. Think about how many takes most of us do on Smule before deciding to save a join or a layer on a collab. You can do it over and over until it’s perfect. Performing is have 1 shot at it and there are hundreds or thousands of eyeballs on you while you’re doing it.

    She has a decent voice; but it is not strong enough & way too quivery. I was a 6 1/2 octave, powerhouse singer/songwriter/musician until Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma lowered my higher 6 register. I had a record contract at 22-yet, stupidly, let the wrong person manage me. I am dying from Stage 4 Endometrial Cancer B1 spread to my bones, Heart Failure (and never was a cigarette smoker) & Progressive MS with seizures & partial blindness. Her second song was much better than the first. As a classically trained pianist at the age of 8; she is a very good keyboard player. She needs to conquer her nerves-easier said than done!
