I’ll be posting several American Idol Top 31 contestants previews every day in the run up to the American Idol XIII premiere on January 15.
Sixteen year old Kenzie Hall auditioned in Salt Lake City with “I’m Gonna Find Another You” by John Mayer. In a FOX screener for reporters, Jennifer Lopez told the singer, ”You have everything going on.” Harry Connick, Jr. was impressed with her musicality, noting that she played a diminished chord on her acoustic guitar. She got 3 yeses.
The young singer/songwriter gigs quite a bit around the Salt Lake City area and she recently released an EP which you can download at iTunes. Check out her Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Her YouTube channel has covers by John Mayer, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and more.
Here’s Kenzie performing “I’m Gonna Find Another You,” the song she auditioned with on Idol. Her vocal has a bluesy edge.
Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
