Brett Young’s ability to throw every emotion into a performance doesn’t end with his original songs. The “In Case You Didn’t Know” hitmaker’s cover of “Hallelujah” is so vulnerable, one senses he’s on the verge of tears.
The just-released “Hallelujah” performance video from Young’s Taste of Country RISERS video shoot is four roller-coaster minutes that spotlight his depth of storytelling. At times tender and at times powerful, this rendition is a hair-raising performance as real as anything Young recorded for his new self-titled album. The “Like I Love You” singer proves that fans have only seen the tip of iceberg in terms of his artistry.
Young was revealed as one of seven Taste of Country RISERS in March, and since then he’s gone on to notch a second No. 1 hit and land a coveted opening slot on Lady Antebellum’s You Look Good Tour. His RISERS performance of “In Case You Didn’t Know” is closing in on 1 million views on YouTube, but perhaps more meaningful is the dozens of comments from fans who admit the song made an impact on an important relationship.
