René Bishop, 71, auditioned for The Voice Senior in 2018 and wowed the judges with a rendition of The Righteous Brother’s Unchained Melody. In this impressive season, he persuaded all of the judges to press the button and turn their chairs around.
The Voice is a television show known for discovering and guiding undiscovered singers. If the vocal coaches like what they hear, they will tap the “I want you” button. If multiple coaches express interest, the performing musician will be paired with the coach who asked them to. Cassadee Pope, Danielle Bradbery, and Jordan Smith are three of the best contestants on The Voice.
The Voice, on the other hand, usually features newcomers. Due to the fact that the elderly are regularly discriminated against, young singers are frequently favored over older ones. To address this unfairness, The Voice Senior, a version of The Voice featuring older singing contestants, was launched. To compete on The Voice Senior, a contestant must be at least 60 years old.
One of these candidates was René Bishop, 71. The Bishop performed Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers. His smooth and fluid performance captivated both the listeners and the coaching staff throughout the song. When the camera pans to Bishop’s family, you can almost feel their happiness. The coaches were all blown away by his performance, and they all expressed their desire for him by pressing the “I want you” button as soon as he hit the song’s high note.
His performance went viral quickly. Bishop’s rendition of Unchained Melody has received over 17 million views on YouTube. All of the comments express admiration for Bishop’s extraordinary singing abilities. “Respect,” one respondent said. Absolute elegance. The world does not belong solely to the young.
Bishop has shown that being a celebrity does not necessitate being young. It is never too late to achieve your dreams. If you have skills, it does not matter how old you are. You can be successful at any age.
