Bryan Olesen Unforgettable 'Africa' Performance On The Voice

Bryan Olesen turned in an unforgettable and awe-inspiring cover performance of “Africa,” wowing the studio audience and the judges on The Voice.

Programs like American Idol, America’s Got Talent and The Voice are fantastic shows because they give people who have been overlooked an opportunity to achieve their dreams. Sometimes, that is all someone needs. A chance to perform in front of and impress the right people could change their lives forever.

In addition to allowing individuals to chase and fulfill their dreams, those shows do something else. They let the studio audience and everyone watching at home hear different interpretations and takes on classic and beloved tunes. Some of them work, even matching the original, and other times they don’t so much.

But you only know once you try, right?

Well, Bryan Olesen, a contestant on The Voice, is one of those people who is hoping to make his musical aspirations and dreams a reality. In his latest appearance on the popular program, he gave his take on the beloved Toto song from the 1980s, “Africa.”

It was an outstanding performance in which he owned the stage, thrilling and treating the studio audience and the judges. Seconds after he began singing, several in the audience started shouting and cheering joyfully.

How can you not enjoy the original and Bryan’s take on the tune? The song’s chorus is so incredibly catchy!

“It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had”

Toto’s “Africa” is one of those songs that, if you hear it once, you’ll have it stuck in your head the rest of the day. But that is not a bad thing. 

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
