Kree Harrison Wows With Moving Delivery of ‘Up to the Mountain’ on ‘American Idol’

Kree Harrison captured the hearts of judges and audience members alike on ‘American Idol’ tonight (Feb. 20). Her rendition of Patty Griffin’s ‘Up to the Mountain’ was passionate and soulful, not to mention incredibly genuine.

Harrison blossomed with her delivery of Grace Potter’s ‘Stars’ in last week’s episode, during which she revealed having lost both of her parents. She possesses a dazzling spirit that shines through her onstage performances.

“It’s so beautiful to watch you sing…not just to listen to you, to watch you,” emphasized ‘Idol’ judge Keith Urban. He also commented that her talent for performing was effortless and authentic. “I would be very afraid if I was any of these other girls here tonight,” Nicki Minaj chimed in. “Every time you sing a song, you make love to the song. I’ve never said that to anyone … Something about you is just so sexy when you sing!”

“Here is another natural-born singer,” said Randy Jackson. Mariah Carey was quick to agree. “You’re not trying to be any way, you’re not putting on any type of thing. It’s just incredibly organic,” she praised. “You sang the hell out of that song, and it was amazing. I loved it.”

“This is all I’ve ever wanted to do,” Harrison admitted after her jaw-dropping performance – and it looks like she’s going to keep on doing it. Needless to say, she’s moving on to the next leg of the ‘American Idol’ competition.
