I have a confession to make. A guilty pleasure if you will.
I watch American Idol. Every season since season 3. I didn’t really get into before that – but I do remember every season since Fantasia.
Over the years I have seen some extraordinary talent emerge from that program – among those really great – Kris Allen, Chris Daughtry, David Cook and Carrie Underwood – the likes of which we would never have heard about otherwise. All of them have made songs famous – and we can name at least one that is our favorite from each artist.
A few years back Katherine McPhee was a runner-up on the show – and other than “Over the Rainbow” – I was not completely taken with her voice. I thought she tried too hard to make her voice do all the runs and vocal acrobatics that some should not do. I thought she was forgettable, until…
A couple of years later I heard this song on the radio. “Ordinary World”. It was amazing – both music and lyrics. I found it and put it on a playlist for my car and computer – and have never grown tired of hearing it when it comes up in the rotation. I think you will like it too.
Forgettable? I think not.
Who is someone who has surprised you – when you thought they were forgettable?
Enjoy and God Bless
