FaithTap Staff 3/18/2019
There really are those songs that we have come to hear so much that we know them by heart. It's like singing an anthem that has been with us since we were young and until now, the beauty of such song is a part of our lives that we will never be complete without.
For me, one of those songs that has really touched my life and still makes me feel nostalgic whenever I hear it would have to be "What A Wonderful World" originally sung by the legendary Louis Armstrong back in 1967. Its melody is sweet and slow, one that is always calming and making everyone feel better knowing that it really is a wonderful world out there. And for me, one of the most beautiful renditions of this amazing song is the duet of none other than Tom Jones and Ruti Olajugbagbe. It was such an amazing performance!
In an episode of The Voice UK, Ruti had the opportunity to sing such an iconic song with her mentor, Tom Jones. Their collaboration is one that was definitely loved not just by the audience in the studio but everyone who was watching the show's finale.
Everybody knew just how great an artist Tom Jones is and that night, he was absolutely every bit of the exceptional artist that everyone thought him to be. His rendition was simple yet honest, something that the song such as "What A Wonderful World" really needed.
Ruti, 18-year-old at that time, also showed the world that she has the right to sit next to her mentor and join him in singing such an iconic anthem. She was completely mesmerizing! Her voice was filling the room and everyone just felt like they were absolutely at the right place at the right time. The other mentors, who are also judges, can't help but smile at the beautiful performance unfolding right before their eyes.
This young lady's voice is definitely unique, which made the song all the more beautiful! It was pure nostalgia. Everyone in the audience was enjoying the slow and steady flow of good music. And matched with the autumn themed background, the duo's performance truly shined and made the people in the room extremely happy.
It was certainly an unforgettable performance. The beautiful vocals, the excellent ambiance and the nostalgic song that is a part of everyone's life is an amazing mix that anyone watching will undoubtedly appreciate. It is a number that will surely put a smile on your face. What an amazing collaboration, indeed!
