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
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.
