    Lovely and haunting…

    I like that far better than even Prince’s version.  Very lovely, and as milwlovesadam said, haunting.

  • Miss Chaos

    He was my favorite from the show, and what a beautiful voice, along with one of my favorite songs.

    Awesome interpretation, in the song and in the video.

    This is an excellent interpretation of the song.  Yes, haunting.  Please don’t think I am nutty, but in this video Jody looks like he could be in Jesus Christ Super Star” (as Jesus).  Just let his hair grow longer.  His face is almost majestic.

    Didn’t like him much on the show, but this is Art.  Loved how they sustained the mood ’til the end.

    Knew about his great voice and looks, but this interpretation shows something way beyond that.   Very interested to see where this goes.

    This is a cool cover.

    According to his FB page, he and Amanda Brown are doing an usstream at Midnight Pacific time

    And he also has a single coming out soon, a duet with Meghan Linsey called “Baby Get Out”

    Took me a moment to remember this guy but he was good.  I’m glad to see these VOice people getting out an about. I have heard Jermain Paul’s song fairly regularly on Hits1 which is cool.  Hopefully Voice will produce an artist that goes mainstream soon.
