Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!
Welcome To Season 10 Of The Voice!

Welcome to The Voice – the show where mega-stars coach aspiring vocalists to be music’s next superstar!

Each season during the Blind Auditions, the coaches listen for the best voices to pick for their teams – then passionately implore their favorites to join them! Who are your favorites so far in the competition?

There have been several early standouts among the Blind Auditions so far, including Mary Sarah’s Where The Boys Are (Team Blake), Emily Keener’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Team Pharrell), and Ryan Quinn’s Can’t Find My Way Home (Team Adam).

But the performance that has moved me the most so far is the earnest performance of 25-year old Owen Danoff – son of Bill Danoff (1976 Grammy Award Winning musician/vocalist from The Starland Vocal Band / Afternoon Delight), who also co-wrote John Denver’s mega-hit, Take Me Home, Country Roads.

Following is Owen’s Blind Audition of Bob Dylan’s beautiful classic, Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right – along with an audio of his original recording as well!

Owen Danoff – Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right

Bob Dylan – Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right

Have an amazing week!

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
