American Idol 2016 Atlanta Audition – Amelia Eisenhauer – Many Rivers to Cross

Amelia Eisenhauer – Many Rivers to Cross by Jimmy Cliff (singer references Annie Lennox) – Back home, she performs in her family band and has a dream to be in her 80s still rocking out on stage! The singer been playing fiddle for over 9 years. The instrument was really superfluous in this instance, she barely played it, but Amelia has a raspy, emotional and soulful delivery that’s compelling. She had some issues shifting to her head voice (Agree with Harry, she was pitchy in spots) but I definitely want to hear more from this singer. Jlo likes her strong voice. Harry says her vocal has a mysterious quality. He notes some pitch problems. Keith compliments Amelia’s “soulful potency.” 3 yesses
