Jennifer Lopez performed with a subtle emotive voice last night on American Idol singing “Feel The Light.” The song appears in the Dreamworks Film “Home” which also includes songs from Pop star, Rihanna, who also stars in the family film. In an enchanting moment, her gown is astonishingly beautiful and magically enchanted the performance.
Lopez might not have a powerful voice, but she’s so unique and has so much talent. It is a treasure, watching her improve vocally each moving performance. This song matches her voice perfectly. In every way, anybody could recognize she was feeling every word of this song. One of her best live vocal performances in years and proves her value as a singer. Nevertheless, the graphics were a hindrance to this viewer, distracting from; her beauty, vocals, and the overall concept of the song and performance. In the past five years, too often in music, overbearing graphics take away from the overall quality in the end. At the end of the day, not many viewers care about visuals besides young adolescents.
As a whole, the song and message shine because of the melody and Lopez’s charming vocal delivery. Also, it is smart a marketing tool for the film “Home,” including visuals from the film during the performance that is certain to enlighten the younger demographic. Lopez continues to improve on her craft, and that is the spirit of a superstar. It is a wonder to see her career thrive after almost 20 years in the game, all due to her commitment to hard work.
