The young Moroccan singer’s voice entranced the audience and judges of the Voice France.
Rabat – Moroccan Ismail Chakly performed on the Voice France’s second blind audition day on Saturday, February 16, singing “Unintended” by the British rock band Muse.
The 24-year-old singer admirably interpreted “Unintended,” convincing all four of the judges to press their buzzers and give him a chance within the first 35 seconds of his song as he entered the song’s refrain, “I’ll be there as soon as I can.” Chakly sang the tender song in honor of his mother.
The judges, Soprano, Jenifer, Julien Clerc, and Mika, all had positive comments for Chakly, calling his performance “magnificent.”
After finishing his performance, Jenifer and Mika argued over who got to bring him onto their team, leaving the choice up to Chakly, who chose Jenifer’s team.
Shortly after the show, Chakly released an acoustic cover of Nadir Leghrib’s song Rmed.
