Kree Harrison Captures Hearts With ‘What the World Needs Now Is Love’ on ‘American Idol’

By now, it’s no secret that Kree Harrison can sing just about anyone under the table, and tonight’s episode of ‘American Idol’ (April 10) was further proof of this. Her brother was able to get time off of work to attend, which made her performance all the more special. Her rendition of ‘What the World Needs Now Is Love’ by Burt Bacharach showcased her stunning vocals and compassionate spirit. She already had a slew of stellar performances under her belt, but this may have been her best one yet!

“You have real, genuine compassion for people; you can feel it,” said ‘Idol’ judge Keith Urban. “It’s that aspect in your voice, in your soul … And you should bring your brother every week, because that’s the best you’ve ever sung.”

Nicki Minaj then contributed her own enthusiastic words of praise. “Your voice is so sweet and humble and endearing and it brings you in, but at the same time, it’s like, ‘Excuse me, I’m Kree, and I’m here, and I ain’t going nowhere,’” she said. “Every country producer and writer, I’m pretty sure, is already lining up to give you material for your first album.”

Randy Jackson added his opinion to the mix, making a dig at Lazaro Arbos in the process. “I love that you came after the last performer,” he spoke emphatically, referencing the lone male contestant’s lackluster performance. “America, that’s what it’s about!”

So, what do you think? Is Harrison your favorite singer on this season of ‘American Idol’? If so, be sure to cast your vote accordingly!
