American Idol Devin Velez “Power of One (Change the World)” – VIDEO

Check out eliminated American Idol, Devin Velez’s, cover of Israel Houghton’s “Power of One (Change the World)” from a performance at the Access Hollywood studios.

Devin performed on Live! With Kelly and Michael today, too. But unfortunately, my DVR crapped out, and I was unable to capture it.

    Well, maybe he did better on Kelly and Michael than Access. His pitch was off; he usually does so much better.

    piano player wasn’t good — u could see Devin struggled with that guy’s playing!

    I think, since Devin is a Latino, he’s got a good chance to make it big. There’s a big Latin community out there. He needs to hang around Hollywood a while and meet with agents.
    Can I give a buzz to Jimmy IO — he should take about three of his top boy singers — Deandre from last year, Devin and somebody else and form a boy band. There’s opportunity there. And he’s missing out.

    I just went to youtube and saw Wendy Williams criticing AI and she made a good point — Queen Latifah.

    Here’s his performance from Kelly and Michael

    Very nice. I still am not a fan of the warbling, but he has a beautiful voice.

  • macfae

    Honestly, Miz, I am not a fan either. Just being helpful to those who are.

    I think he has a really marketable sound for either Latin music or Gospel, if he wishes to go in that direction with songs like this one (though hopefully a little better than this one, lol) I don’t know if he will get signed but I hope he does!

    Cool boy band idea, also! :D

  • JosieX

    Thank you macfae. I really like that kid and love his voice, I’m glad I got to see that.

  • Madilo

    same here i love his tone

    You know, Jlo for two seasons tried to get a Latin singer into the finals and it didn’t work. The closest was Karen Rodriguez and she fought for Karen. Too bad Jlo isn’t on Idol this year with the two Latin singers, esp. Devin, because I think she would fight for Devin.

  • Kariann Hart

    I had made that suggestion several times. Wasn’t she approached by Idol? My goodness, she would be so much better than Nicki and Mariah!

    Is Devin really the least experienced? I thought Lazaro and Burnell had minimal experience. I know Lazaro said he’d never had voice coaching prior to Idol. Devin just seems to know more a lot more about how to sing to me. But then he qualified it on the second show by saying no studio experience, But I assume Lazaro and Burnell don’t have that either. I’ve just never heard anyone say that before. No question he’s younger. Although i think Amber is also 18?
