Lia Joham Turns The Judges With 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' Audition

21-year-old Lia Joham earns a spot on The Voice Of Germany with her rendition of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water.’


This iconic song was released in 1969 by the popular duo Simon & Garfunkel. Over the years, many artists have lent their voices to this tune with notable performances from Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin and Andrea Bocelli.

There’s no doubt that this song has truly stood the test of time. It’s combination of difficult notes and poignant lyrics make it a one powerful number to perform.

“When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes,
I'll dry them all (all)
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down”

Lia Joham has always loved singing. As a teen, she was a member of a children’s choir and even performed on the streets in Austria while attending college for sound engineering. But The Voice is definitely the biggest stage this 21-year-old has ever set foot on.

Lia stood in confidence as she belted out the iconic lyrics to ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water.’ And when she hit those high notes, some of the judges just had to turn around and put a face to that powerful voice.

This is not an easy song to perfect, but Lia pulled it off flawlessly. After moving on from the blind auditions, Lia will now compete for the winner’s title on The Voice Of Germany.
