Talent comes in all shapes and sizes and for some people, age is nothing but a number. For a lot of singers, they don’t lose their ability in their later years which is what The Voice Senior wanted to prove.
Yes, The Voice Senior in Holland is an OAP version of the show where we get to hear the talented vocal stylings of many old people up and down the country.
It was on this show where we were blessed with the presence of René Bishop. At 71-years-old, René wanted to prove that his talent hasn’t faded away.
We saw some pretty talented pensioners on The Voice Senior, but Bishop stood out to us for his beautiful rendition of an Elvis Presley classic.
For the judges, hearing René’s stunning vocals reminded them of ‘The King’ himself. The show starts the same as any other, the judges are facing the opposite direction in the red chairs as the contestant starts to sing. But as soon as René started belting out ‘Unchained Melody’ the whole room erupted into cheers.
We can’t help but think he was truly channeling Elvis in his performance. At 71-years-old, his vocals were flawless and his stage presence was a marvel.
But when René hit that high note, wow! Don’t let age fool you, this man is a powerhouse with some seriously strong vocals.
The whole room was applauding and the judges, of course, turned around for René Bishop after his flawless performance. We promise you it’s worth watching, it may even inspire you to get back to a karaoke bar near you.
