19-Year-Old Brings The Nostalgia With 'Heartbreak Hotel' Blind Audition

There is nothing quite like the classic coming back to life. In this video, a 19-year-old brings on the nostalgia with “Heartbreak Hotel” in a blind audition.

Right from the start, this young man owns the stage with his big personality and his vocals. Peedy Chavis is only 19-years-old and he completely blows this performance out of the water. John Legend and Blake Shelton quickly turn around wanting him to join their team. They love his Elvis impressions. As he takes his voice up into falsetto, John stands to his feet cheering him on. Peedy continues finishing the song with such confidence and poise. The female judges do not turn around but look at each other smiling clearly enjoying the song.

The judges and the audience cheer. John Legend shouts, “yes!” Kelly Clarkson turns her chair and says, “Oh my gosh you are adorable!” The guys get onto the girls, “What is wrong? How could you not turn around for Elvis?” Peedy is from Lawrenceville, Georgia. He shares how Elvis was his hero from a very early age. His mom put on a 1968 comeback special and he got into his music. Later John asks if he likes the classic and Peedy shares that he does, Kelly Clarkson hilariously says, “What are you like transported from another time, this is insane.” In the end, Peedy chooses Blake as his coach.

There is wisdom to learn from those who have gone before us. Peedy had a phenomenal performance because he put his heart and soul into it. He also learned from one of the best. Even though he mimicked Elvis, there is nothing new under the sun. We can learn from those who have gone before us, ultimately we are all people just living in different time periods. I love how Peedy brings back a wonderful style of this music.

“What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9
