During the finale for “The Voice” on Monday night, we’re going to have a chance to see some of the finalists perform songs that were may have been foreign to them a good couple of months ago. That may not be the case for Laith Al-Saadi, though, who is performing a song in “Morning Light” that he’s had in his arsenal for years.
You can listen to his iTunes version of the song (or at least a preview of it) over at this link, and we feel like if you’re a Laith fan, it’s pretty darn easy to be impressed by this. It feels firmly within his lane, while still pushing his vocals. There’s a little bit of soul in here, a little bit of blues, and then also plenty of old-school rock. Laith’s abilities at the guitar are one of the reasons he really stands out in the crowd this season, and there’s a mighty impressive solo in the middle of this song.
While we know the original song will be a key component in how well Laith does this season, it’s hard to predict going into the show how well he will do with it. We know that Adam Wakefield is also performing a song that is near and dear to him, and Alisan Porter has been a favorite this season from almost the beginning.
Regardless of what happens, it’s easy to say that Laith’s fans have nothing to be upset about tonight. He’s fought hard to make it to this point, and he has certainly set himself up well to do some great things moving forward in his career.
