Long before Sundance Head made his way to The Voice, he was on another reality singing competition — American Idol. Nearly a decade ago in 2007, the singer auditioned for the sixth season of Idol.
While he placed in the Top 20 on the show, his early audition video had Simon Cowell certain that he’d make it to the finals. At the Memphis auditions, Head performed a beautiful a capella version of “Stormy Monday” and he had all three judges in disbelief.
“Wow,” Cowell said. “Probably one of the best voices we’ve heard on the auditions this year in every way. I’m going to be amazed if you don’t make the finals. I thought it was terrific, well done.”
Paula Abdul raved about his “powerful voice,” while Randy Jackson also praised the singer.
