For “The Voice” semi-finals, accomplished country singer, Red Marlow, chose to sing Vince Gill’s masterpiece, “Go Rest High on That Mountain”. This deeply, sentimental song was written by Gill in remembrance of his late brother and was also inspired by the passing of country music great, Keith Whitley.
As one of this season’s “Voice” favorites, Marlow knew he had to give it everything for the live Top 8 performances. He needed to deliver his best performance yet, and a thrilled audience and viewers were treated to a classic, country-style rendition of the treasured song.
The song is a popular choice and has been chosen by previous “Voice” contestants, most notably by 2015 semi-finalist, Shelby Brown, who amazed the audience with her powerful performance.
Marlow’s rendition was equally impressive, full of the raw emotion of the lyrics, which allowed him to showcase the strength of his vocals. In a performance that was both believable and full of passion, he was able to capture people’s hearts, they felt what he was singing and that’s what makes him a great artist
Red Marlow’s strong performance won him the instant save to get into the finale where he earned a respectable fourth place.
So beautifully sung! His voice and his rendition of this Vince Gill classic were out of this world.
