The season finale of “The Voice,” saw many stars hit the stage, including Kelly Clarkson and Bebe Rexha, but one standout performance was that of Vince Gill singing his 1989 hit, “When I Call Your Name,” with contestant Red Marlow.
In the previous week on the show, Red took the stage to sing Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High on That Mountain” during the live Top 8 performances.That performance lead to the legendary singer joining to the show the following week.
“When I Call Your Name,” had the two singers trading verses like, “A note on the table that told me goodbye / It said you’d grown weary of living a lie / Oh your love has ended but mine still remains / But nobody answers when I call your name/ Oh the lonely sound of my voice calling / Is driving me insane / And just like rain the tears keep falling / Nobody answers when I call your name.“
While Red sounded a bit like Alan Jackson when he kicked off the song, his voice blended seamlessly with Vince, one of country music’s greatest voices, leading the way. Let’s face it, anyone would sound good with Vince singing along.
Unfortunately Red didn’t take home the trophy. The Alabama native finished in fourth place behind Brooke Simpson, Addison Agen and the season 13 winner, Chloe Kohanski from Team Blake. Chloe’s win gave Blake his 6th win as coach and a bigger lead in the coach with the most wins.
