Lindsey Pavao - Say Ahh (The Voice)
So you're about to learn one of our dirty little secrets. Our guilty pleasure on Monday night is The Voice; the NBC show that does away with the visual judgement of other rising star programs, as the judges have to choose contestants based on their voice alone, essentially blind as their backs are turned while the person performs. We saw Lindsay's performance several weeks ago, and have not been able to get her out of our head. Her performance of Trey Songz's tune "Say Ahh" is nothing short of remarkable. We had to listen to the original to be sure, but Ms. Pavao's version bares little resemblance, having come up with an arrangement that is singularly hers. At times her voice is sweet, almost innocent, and at others, her large Bambi eyes betray a darker side, with her voice turning to a declarative growl. We urge you to listen...and then listen again. We think Lindsey Pavao has a very bright musical future despite what happens on the television show, and we're so looking forward to hearing her claim other's material as her own.
