From the second Adam Cunningham appeared on The Voice, it was obvious he’d be one of the main contestants to watch this season. Originally part of Team Blake, Cunningham surprisingly lost his knockout round and was stolen by Adam Levine.
So when it came time for the playoffs, Cunningham had to prove himself against the five other contestants on Levine’s team. He managed to do just that with his impressive performance of a song called “Have a Little Faith in Me.”
Written and originally recorded by Americana artist John Hiatt, “Have a Little Faith in Me” was never a major chart success. Despite this, it has been covered numerous times by many big-name artists, including Joe Cocker, Jewel, and Jon Bon Jovi.
Now, Cunningham can add his rendition of “Have a Little Faith in Me” to that list of notable covers. The song allowed him the perfect opportunity to showcase the gritty, soulful sound of his voice, and he took full advantage of that opportunity. He hit multiple strings of spine-tingling notes, which left both the audience and the coaches in awe.
Watching the coaches, you can tell how blown away they were by Cunningham’s vocal power. Jennifer Hudson made several exclamations when Cunningham hit a particularly strong note, and Miley Cyrus made it clear how much her mom would love listening to him sing.
In addition to his vocal power, Cunningham also displayed an expert knowledge of how to work a stage. He made sure to interact with the crowd for the duration of the song, which added a sense of personality and charm to his performance.
After a performance like that, it’s really no wonder why Levine chose Cunningham as one of three contestants he wants to take to the lives. You’ll see why he picked him when you watch his performance below!
Now we can’t wait to see what else Cunningham will have in store for us on The Voice!
