‘Oh Happy Day’ is a song that has been made famous by many singers over the years, but few can compare to the soulful performance delivered by Chi Ennis McLean for her The Voice Kids UK blind audition. Her glorification of God uplifted, earning her the respect of listeners all around the world, and progression into the competition.
With a performance packing soul into every word, 12-year-old Chi’s rendition took a while to reach the point where no one could deny her vocal talent. Even though the judges sat back in waiting, no discouragement came to this young star who continued to sing her heart out right until the end. On the very final bar, Pixie Lott turned.
Chi is a child whose mom professes was smiling from birth. Her happiness is contagious, being clearly felt through her open expression of the lyrics to ‘Oh Happy Day.’ Devotional, beautiful and powerful, one couldn’t hope for a more moving rendition of this timeless Christian track made famous by the feature film ‘Sister Act 2.’
