From the moment we first heard Tyanna Jones sing (she wowed us with a soulful rendition of Little Mix’s “Wings”), we knew there was a sparkle in Jacksonville, Floria native that would carry her to the final bout in the competition. She isn’t there quite yet, but we’re willing to bet our brunch money she’ll make it.
Her emotional story, about living in her church basement with her mother and siblings, only tugged on our heartstrings more. She had us locked from the very beginning.
We’ve tuned in week after week to watch Tyanna perform songs like “Love On Top” by Beyonce, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston and this week’s choice, “Stay” by Rihanna. With her signature
blue purple hair neatly combed into a pompadour and polka dot blouse peaking beneath her blazer, she reminds us of a young Janelle Monae.
Tyanna’s vocal showing earned her a spot in the Top 8 and we have a feeling she’s going to take it all the way. How can you not get goosebumps listening to her rich vocals?
With a few more weeks to go, we’re keeping track of her greatest performances. Check them out below and be sure to vote for Tyanna, here.
