La’Porsha! La’Porsha! La’Porsha! Lord Jesus! That’s about all I can say. She is the truth! And every single week on American Idol she slays. Last night on American Idol, La’Porsha covered Beyoncé’s “Halo,” and basically made it a brand new song. She almost had me shouting while giving some good ole church revival runs.
Harry Connick Jr.’s comment were on point. La’Porsha is a beast at arcing a song. That talent hasn’t been this exemplary on the Idol stage since season 12’s winner Candice Glover. She started off the song so beautiful. She inched into it, and then around the 1:00 mark took it right on out or straight to a backwoods church. Then she did what so many singers have trouble doing. She controlled the ending of the song. It’s like she’s been singing in front of millions all her life!
La’Porsha Renae is a star, point blank. I cannot wait to buy her first project, but for now I’ll enjoy her coming out week after week and blazing. Watch her breath-taking performance below:
