“Gamu Nhengu, candidate for X Factor Uk, captures Simon Cowell’s attention in a three -minute performance and breathes a new life into a song created before his birth. »»
Nhengu, who is 18, says she wants to be someone and do something that people will remember if she becomes a singer. She speaks with eloquence and persuasion before the four judges, and she does not seem nervous.
Nhengu chose the song “Walking on Sunshine”. She is from Katrina and the Waves, a New Wave group from the 1980s.
Simon thinks that the girl is crazy to try the “worst music of all time”, until the first note is played.
Nhengu informs the judges in his introduction that she made some modifications to her song. She does not say what she has changed, whether it is a lyrical change or a new arrangement, so that the public and the judges are naturally intrigued. Once she has overcome the presentations and started to sing, Nhengu does not disappoint.
“I am delighted to hear what you did with this song. »»
She is fantastic and conquered the hearts of the plues of people.
His changes were minimal, but they had a significant impact on the general sense of the song. Unlike the refrain of the original song, which begins with “you are my ray of sunshine/and that does not make a sensation”, the interpretation of Nhengu begins, “you are my ray of sunshine/but you have to go”.
This alludes to the theme of the song: a break. From his body language to her acerbic delivery to his clothes, it is a powerful performance which corresponds well to the personality of Nhengu.
The other judges have only admiration for Nhengu.
