Watch R&B Superstar Usher Cover Blake Shelton’s ‘Neon Light’ and ‘Home’
Fans of the reality TV show 'The Voice' know that the judges are always reminding the contestants to make the cover songs they are singing "their own." I guess they like to 'practice what they preach', because that is exactly what one former judge of 'The Voice' has done.
Taking his own advice, R&B superstar Usher did his own version of Blake Shelton's 'Neon Light' at the United Way of Dallas' 90th Anniversary Celebration. Turning Shelton's upbeat 'Neon Light' into a smooth, soul ballad, Usher then asked the audience of about 20,000 people at the Celebration how he did.
It doesn’t matter if it’s country or R&B music, an emotion is an emotion, right?
Blake Shelton and Usher did team up during the Celebration for a duet that many might consider as an 'unusual pairing' on Shelton's hit "Home".
Blake Shelton is one of two original judges from 'The Voice'. Usher was a judge during seasons four and six. Season 8 of 'The Voice' begins airing on KDLT on Monday, February 8, 2015 with judges Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera.
