    How many huge songs did she take on so far? Or do I remember incorrectly…I should check. Very young and already a polished voice. Which might be a problem, because the voice doesn't stand out as such. It's more about her vocals. That said, this sounded off in parts. Some people think you can't do a Beyonce song without making it different or better, somehow. I'm not sure I agree, but if I did, I don't think that happened here.
    EDIT: Oh, the earpierce fell out…that's a bummer. Still…maybe pick a few less epic songs to more easily put your spin on them. If they even let you…

    the voice of this girl does not transmit me any emotion…. it is "aseptic"

  • Reply Joe Black November 27, 2018 at 9:21 am

    WOW! so good.

  • Reply Lin Marie November 27, 2018 at 11:08 am

    There are a couple of other young singers who are good, but they don't come close to Kennedy and I don't just mean the voice I mean her stage presence. She commands your attention with her vocals that drift in and out of little nooks and crannies then resurfaces with power that locks you in emotionally. She's poised and controlled and knows how to work her audience. That's the stuff you can't be taught, it's what the other younger and older singers are lacking…except for for Kimberlie Joye. But remember Kennedy is only 13. How the hell she has it at that young age is amazing.

  • Reply VizionWorksEditing November 27, 2018 at 12:44 pm

    This wasn’t the greatest choice for her. Song doesn’t match her singing voice

  • Reply Chuck White November 27, 2018 at 4:42 pm

    Lots of good singers this season, but to me, Kennedy is far and away the best of them.

  • Reply ALEX XELA November 27, 2018 at 8:37 pm

    I do love her voice and singing, but her higher chest notes sound a bit forced, while her lower register is full and has a warm tone, hope she won't destroy her beautiful instrument any soon

    She needs alot more breath control.. it wasnt as clean as it supposed to be, but she was ok

  • Reply BeautyShemale December 1, 2018 at 10:05 am

    She is good but definitely the best girl who has auditioned blindly performing the song Halo by Beyonce, is Roxana from The Voice Kids Poland. Apart from interpreting in an amazing way the version that made is perfect.💕

    I think part of her issue with connection to the audience is the fact that she's only 13!!! Regardless, baby girl did amazing. EDIT: I watched it again to see if i lost connection. I didn't. iono what y'all talking about man lol

    She’s off key & I feel she’s to young to sing this song, meaning she doesn’t connect emotionally to the lyrics of the song, it’s like she’s just singing by rote rather than understanding the meaning behind the words!
