Bria Kelly Sings “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele
On April 21, Team Usher blues singer Bria Kelly gave a rousing performance of “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele. Bria wanted a song to show a soulful side of her voice, and both she and Usher came up with the Adele hit. Tapping into the gritty edge of the song, Bria performed the song for her coach during rehearsals. Though Usher enjoyed Bria’s take on the song, he advised her to work on key notes and lyrics to really bring the song home.
Bria took the stage, guitar in hand, with a rock n’ roll rendition of the hit song, and received rave reviews from the coaches. Shakira noted that taking an Adele song is a challenge, but if anyone could do it, it would definitely be Bria. She told the singer that she displayed her gritty, fierce side and said Bria showed her true colors.
Adam Levine thought that Bria’s performance was really great, even though he (and Shakira) would’ve prefered to have heard the song in a higher key. However, he like that the song was angsty and young. He told Bria she did a great job with the Adele tune. Blake Shelton mimicked Adam’s review, by saying that he liked the rock edge that she brought to it and Bria’s amazing breath control on her notes. Usher thought that Bria stepped into the shadow of incredible artists to become incredible artists and he said he felt fire in her song. She made changes to show the kind of vocalist she’d like to be and did an amazing job of it.
