Jeff Gutt Does This Song Justice!
If you were to sing a classic rock song that would truly show off your chops as a vocalist, there are plenty of songs that would come to mind, but the one that sticks out in my mind has to be Open Arms. This song by the legendary rock band Journey is one of the most iconic rock ballads of all time and will surely remain so forever.
Not only is this song truly iconic in of itself, but it has become what I call the ultimate audition song. Whether it’s The Voice, American Idol, The X Factor etc, this song has been used dozens of times at least by contestants to impress the judges and audience. That is VERY much the case in with this singer here!
What you’re about to watch is a video in which a man by the name of Jeff Gutt takes to the stage on The X Factor USA and sings a riveting performance of the aforementioned song Open Arms. To put it simply, this young man knocks it out of the park! Don’t believe me? See for yourself!
