February 11th, 2021

Did you ever feel nostalgic whenever you hear an old song on the radio?

It makes you remember your grandparent’s old hands swaying you back and forth as a toddler or your mom’s smile as she sings to you the song over and over again. Each song carries with it a memory and a message.

No wonder some songs are a little more iconic than the rest.

These songs often freeze us in our tracks and hum with the tune as we remember those fond memories. Some songs are as old as our grandparents or parents, but its still a hit in our generation. We can actually name a few such as Power of Love, Tie a Yellow Ribbon and Mama Mia.

Not only do these songs take us back to the past, but it’s used by many singers for their audition.

As it turns out, there was a recent audition on The Voice Kids UK that fit perfectly in this category.

And do you know who performed it?

It was performed by an adorable seven-year-old boy named Shaney-Lee.

When Shaney-Lee was asked to explain his backstory, he said that he lives on a farm with several animals. Due to his background, he chose to perform the song “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by John Denver.
