As people age, they experience changes in their body that limit them not just in the things they do but also in the things they want to achieve. Aging is one of the most common reasons why people, even the most talented ones, are afraid of showing what they really can do. They are afraid of being ridiculed and embarrassed by other younger people.
For Dan Lucas, his passion for music is a lot more important than his age or what other people think. It didn't stop him from joining The Voice Senior Germany and delivering a really spectacular performance.
With his long hair, black shirt, and jeans, you wouldn't even think that Dan is already in his senior years. What you'll see is a talented singer who's just enjoying a song and performing it for others.Dan performed one of Journey's most famous hits "Don't Stop Believin'". And being a popular hit, the song's first few notes instantly sent the judges to their feet and the rest of the audience feeling good.
At age 64, Dan truly has an impressive voice and vocal range. Hearing him sing, you may even think that he's singing straight from a recording studio. It was polished and his delivery was on point. The song has its mix of low and high notes and he was able to hit each of them really well. You won't see him having a hard time or getting short on breath.
Dan's song is a good source of inspiration and motivation for people of Dan's age. Just like everyone else, they shouldn't stop believing in their dreams and aspirations in life just because they are older than others. They should seize every opportunity they get and make the most out of it.
Dan went to Sascha Schmitz' team and was later declared as the winner.
The Voice Senior is a wonderful opportunity for older people to show what they can do. It's a platform where they can just perform without worrying about other people criticizing them for singing or performing on stage even at their age.
"Don't Stop Believin'" is an original track from Journey's 7th album. Upon its release, it immediately became a Billboard Hot 100 hit. A dozen more artists covered the song after that. It became even more popular after being used in the final scene of The Sopranos from HBO. Later on, it was recorded by the cast of Glee, a popular American television series.
