Seventy-one-year-old Rene Bishop set a fantastic example for the other The Voice Senior contestants to follow with his breathtaking audition. The soulful singer stepped up the level of competition as he put forth an amazingly deep performance of ‘Unchained Melody’ originally by The Righteous Brothers. From stage presence to vocal perfection, Rene blew away the competition.
His rendition stayed truthful to the original. Given the popularity of this timeless track, this was certainly a risk for his The Voice Senior Of Holland entry. Without missing a note, Rene won over the judges, turning four chairs, and in turn, winning him the freedom to choose which judge he preferred from the panel of astounded faces.
Once you hear the way that Rene Bishop’s voice rings out a faithful tribute to The Righteous Brothers, you’ll demand to see more of this emerging star. You couldn’t hope for a better The Voice Seniors blind audition, nor a richer, more soothing version of ‘Unchained Melody.’ Rene knows how to imbue his unique essence into each bar.
