I am not sure how to describe it other than that – Amateur Grace. It’s the reason I watch the tv show, American Idol. Every once in a while a person will make an appearance on the show that can just flat out sing. This season’s person is Crystal Bowersox.
Regardless of whether she wins this season, though there is no one who can hold a candle to her from amongst the other contestants, we will probably see her name grace the professional ranks of musicians in the near future. I hope she remembers why she loves music today – it’s that spark that colors her music that goes beyond the raw talent.
Here is her performance from last night. Watch it and tell me how you would label it.
