Ruby Leigh Chilling Cover Of ‘Desperado’ By The Eagles On The Voice

One contestant, a musically gifted young woman, on The Voice, covered a classic and beloved tune from one of the biggest groups of all time, The Eagles.

Don Henley, Joe Walsh and the other members of The Eagles are responsible for some of the biggest and most memorable hits of the last 40-50 years. Tunes like “Take It Easy,” “Take It to the Limit,” “Life in the Fast Lane” and “Heartache Tonight” are classics, sure to get everyone singing along within the first few notes. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, Ruby Leigh, a member of Team Reba on The Voice, showed off her beautiful voice and range with a lovely performance of another hit from the legendary band. She thrilled the audience with her cover of “Desperado.”

“Desperado, oh, you ain’t getting no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re drivin’ you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that’s just some people talkin’
Your prison is walking through this world all alone”

Ruby’s rendition is fantastic. She beautifully sings the classic tune, belting out the lyrics as the audience sporadically cheers and shouts during her delightful performance. 

She undertook a monumental task. Choosing a song as well-known and beloved as The Eagles’ “Desperado” is a brave and bold decision. If she had missed a word or sung a lyric wrong, everyone would have sat up and immediately taken notice of her mistake. Instead, she knocked it out of the park, sending the entire studio audience into a frenzy at the end of her performance. 

In addition to Ruby’s awe-inspiring vocal performance, which is literal music to the ears, the stage is also a sight to behold. Everything from the lighting, the musicians who accompany her on stage and the heavy use of fog perfectly set the mood for her performance. 

Ruby showed with her inspired performance of “Desperado” that she is a talented young singer with a bright future in the entertainment industry. 

Psalm 105:2 “Let your voice be sounding in songs and melody; let all your thoughts be of the wonder of his works.”
