Vocal Coach comments from Tom Burke
Hi Jose. Great rep choice for your voice. I really appreciated your connection to the text. I noticed that you seemed even more connected when singing in Spanish. This is very common that people can be even more authentic and specific when singing in their native tongue. Experiment with how you can integrate the two. The intro is long and that can be used in your favor. I wanted to be immersed in the story from the beginning from the end. Notice that you looked at the producer or off camera during the intro and outro. Experiment with entering the story from the first note and staying there to the last without disconnecting visually.
Why I chose Jose Garcia as a Finalist
I am putting Jose forward to the next level of the competition due to his connection with the text and great choice of song for his voice.
Why we chose Jose Garcia as the Winner
Jose’s voice is perfect for this timeless style of music, and he interprets the song and the timings nicely. His character comes through very well, with a powerful delivery that is smooth, sexy and expressive. Tom Burke’s initial comments about the Spanish section were spot on!
