The Voice Australia highlights – Darren Percival

This is for the older readers of realityravings!

40 year-old Darren Percival certainly proved that he has the (sexy) voice on Sunday’s show, with a resonating performance of John Lennon’s ‘Jealous Guy’. He had all four judges vying for him, but decided to be a part of Keith’s team. Prior to auditioning for The Voice, Darren has had 22 years of experience as a professional singer and back-up vocalist. And despite this, he’s yet to break into the recording industry, he feels, mostly because of his looks and the commercial market.

Maybe now is the time for him to make it big! Take a peek of Darren’s blind audition:

You can follow Darren on Twitter at @mrpercivalrocks and on his Facebook page.

Also check out his live performances over on his YouTube channel. Listen to his single, ‘Electric Avenue’ here:

To top that off, here’s Darren singing ‘When the War Is Over’ with fellow contestant Mahalia Barnes’s father, Jimmy Barnes!

His website is also worth checking out for his personal blogposts and links to his music/iTunes.

I’m just a nauseous guy”

When John Lennon did covers , he didn’t fool with the songs’ melodies and often improved on original versions ie the entire Rock ‘n Roll album.

The same can’t be said of this parasite.

He has based his rendition on the brilliant Donny Hathaway version.

Calling someone a parasite due to your own ignorance.

There’s more than ninety recorded covers of Jealous Guy. You’d know them all,right?

Another choice selection went thru last night; really enjoyed it. I wonder how the next battles will play out

This guy is amazing. He is my favourite too… his voice is brilliant, I’ve never heard anything as good..

He’s still my fave too. The battles sorted some of the wheat from the chaff. A few dodgies snuck through though.

I really really like his voice I hope he wins.
