Mild-mannered Jahmene Douglas stepped on the X Factor stage in Britain on August 18, 2012, but as soon as he started singing he turned into Superman. As the last note of his song faded into the night, he once again assumed his secret identity of a nervous twenty-year-old supermarket clerk. Seriously, his transformation before and after his performance was astonishing. It was a joy to behold.
Jahmene is one of those rare people who have been blessed with the magical ability to totally lose themselves in their music and effortlessly express the deepest, most authentic part of themselves. Every note he sings strikes a chord of resonance and recognition in those who are fortunate enough to hear him sing. When Jahmene sings, you don’t just listen with your ears, your whole body reacts.
Judge Gary Barlow told him, “Jahmene, mate, I’ve got to tell you, I have never seen a vocal performance like that before. That was off the scales.” After Jahmene left the stage, judge Nicole Scherzinger commented, “He’s world-class; he would sell all over the world,” to which Barlow affirmed, “Absolutely.”
Here is Jahmene on the first live show singing a John Lennon classic. I love me some Jahmene!
TEARS DON’T DRY ON THEIR OWN / AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH
I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER FOR YOU
KILLING ME SOFTLY
DON’T LEAVE ME THIS WAY
I HAVE A DREAM
THE TRACKS OF MY TEARS
I LOOK TO YOU
