One of my students is addicted to the Korean variety show I Am A Singer (나는 가수다). So when I saw him yesterday, all we talked about was what happened during the May 8. He knows I can relate to Korean music so he always feels comfortable when talking about it.
Among all the performances he described, I was most intrigued about the performance of Lee Sora. She did her own version of Boa‘s Number One.
Every time I hear Lee Sora sing, I always get goosebumps! I automatically associate it with an opera signer singing an Aria! Think Christine from Phantom of the Opera singing Think of Me.
Boa’s Number One an old Kpop song that I like since my early Kpop days. That was about the time Eat You Up was popular. I did a quick search on Boa and voila I found this song.
Now back to I am a singer… Lee Sora did a rock version of the song. Though the song brings out the best in her voice (man she could sing a rock ballad!), I still like her doing the ballad songs. I think I’m not used to her having to sing in this genre. But one thing she proves though, is that she can do a variety of genres.
Oh and in case you were wondering, this is the original Boa version:
Which version do you like?
