Billy Gilman Rocks ‘The Voice’ Finale With ‘Proud Mary’ [Watch]
Gilman brought back Christian Cuevas, Ali Caldwell, Courtney Harrell and Sa'Rayah for a joint performance of "Proud Mary."
The song was written by John Fogerty and originally performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival, but Gilman chose to re-construct the arrangement made famous by Ike and Tina Turner in one of his final performances on The Voice stage, bringing a very different slant to a season that has seen him turn in one unexpected performance after another.
The performance began slow and sultry before bursting into a high-energy rave-up that stunned the live audience with its passion.
The 28-year-old singer was previously best known for his 2000 hit "One Voice," which charted when he was only 11 years old. He struggled to follow up in later years, especially after his voice changed.
The singer battled back with a surprise audition for The Voice in September, singing a stellar cover of Adele‘s “When We Were Young." He's gone on to an impressive run on Adam Levine‘s team, turning in a series of great songs including “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson, Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song,” Queen‘s “The Show Must Go On” and Adele’s “All I Ask.”
