There are lots of gifted people in the world. Charly Luske is one of them. When this man stepped on the stage of “The Voice Holland” in 2011, he managed to leave everybody speechless with his jaw-dropping blind audition. For his first performance on the show, he sang, “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” by James Brown. The judges couldn’t believe themselves when they first heard him sing. They were so blown away that they ended up pressing their buzzers even before he finished the first line.
Recorded on February 16th, 1966, the song is credited to James Brown and Betty Jean Newsome. It was released as a single later that same year, and it managed to reach No. 1 on the Billboard R&B chart and No.
8 on the Billboard Hot 100. The title of the song is a word play on the 1963 comedy movie, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. The iconic song has been covered by lots of artists. It is a hard song to perform, but Charly did it justice.
The man was encouraged by his dad to begin voice lessons at the age of 12, and as you can see, it helped a lot. Charly is well-known in Holland because he is an actor and a TV presenter as well. He made it to the semifinals and produced his own single, “Nobody’s Guy”. Watch his amazing rendition of the classic below and feel free to share your thoughts about it in the comments!
