Chayce Beckham Sounds Like The Heart Of America! - American Idol 2021
After a difficult year, Chayce Beckham decided to lay it all on the line for his American Idol audition, performing “What Brings Life Also Kills” by Kolton Moore and The Clever Few. Luke Bryan tells Chayce that he’s what this show is all about. Lionel praises Chayce's commitment and believability. Katy tells Chayce that he sounds like the “heart of America," and predicts he'll end up in the top 5 of this competition! Apple Valley California may not have given us any apples, but it did give us Chayce Beckham, and for that...we are thankful.

    I heard Chayce Beckham for the first time tonight on Idol. I loved his voice immediately in the first 20 seconds I was pulled into his emotional soulful sound. He is so good and I think he can win American Idol and has the chops to be a Major Star I hope he stays with Americana/singer songwriter Rock Genre.He sounds so soulful reminds me of Mike Farris from 90's The Screamin Cheetah Wheelies and his last solo album Silver and Stone.I am looking forward for your next performance on Idol. Stay Tuned###

    I saw videos of the sinking sailor days (his reggae band) of his life and I now understand what dark days he is referring to, he is totally a changed man right now. His experience made him humble, down earth, and mature. Yet, his singing is still there and even better. Right now, there is an overwhelming flow of emotion whenever he sings that it gets right through your soul. I still see him having depression though there is sadness in his eyes, a good thing is that he is meeting lots of people right now (important people that can actually help him) and it seems that it makes him happy. Good luck to Chayce Beckham, hope lots of people will vote for him if he ever gets into the live show performance.
