First released in 1966, “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” is a classic soul and R&B song written by James Brown and Betty Jean Newsome. The song was a huge success, reaching number one on the R&B charts and number eight on the Billboard Hot 100. Brown’s passionate performance and the song’s powerful lyrics made it a timeless hit.
So when Jimi Bellmartin stepped on the stage of The Voice – Senior for his blind ambition, he had some big shoes to fill. And boy, did he ever fill them–he is simply phenomenal! Dressed in his signature turban and tunic, he instantly captivates the judges and the audience.
This audition from the inaugural season of the Senior edition is by far one of the most amazing performances I have ever seen. Jimi was a 65–year–old singer–songwriter from California who performed a variety of genres, including blues, country, rock, and jazz. Throughout the show, Jimi wowed the judges with his unique renditions of classic songs.
He made it to the finale of the show and actually won! His voice is perfect for this song choice. Watch the video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
