  1. Some people might say he pandered but he really did a beautiful job. Much better than his song choice from last night.

  2. Lol! I love yall! One thing this show has done is make me a stronger person, and allowed me to excise love for folk who just don't know what to say or do. But it's all good! THANK YOU FOR WATCHING, VOTING, BOOING, MEAN QUOTES, ENCOURAGING…ECT! God has used you all in a way that makes me better and I literally pray for yall all the time that he continues to bless yall in EVERY way!

  3. We all can agree that he can SING, but I feel like "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" would have been a way better option. Wishing Gary the best. He's an amazing artist and seems to be a humble guy too!

  4. The only thing that comes to my mind when someone sings America songs is Fergie singing the national anthem I can't 🤣

  5. Nicely done, but the song choice – meh! I really don't like what seems like pandering for patriotic votes. Also, not a fan of those who do the same with religious songs.

  6. I did not see last night episode of the voice, but he did an excellent job singing America The Beautiful!!!! Bravo

  7. the ending could have bee better but overall a wonderful as well as very emotional and uplifting performance. well done.

  8. I'm not from America but my opinion in this performance is his song choice really suits his voice and he have improve from the 1st round..

  9. Thanks for singing this! The national anthem is about war but America the Beautiful is about brotherhood. I wish it was our national anthem instead. Nice job!!

  10. EXCELLENT – so glad he chose this one. What a class act. I hope to hear this live by him on the 4th of July. Let's hear it for that choir of voices behind him – superb.

  11. I wanted to dislike this song, but he killed it. He showed off so much with this. I hope the song choice didn't hold back people from voting for him.

  12. Shocked as I was at the song choice, I really liked his interpretation of the song; traditional, yet bluesy and accessible. Gary's got real skill, if he goes through I'd love to hear him tackle "Creep".

  13. Okay. Now that was beautiful. Nothing like pride of country sung with heart, melody, truth. Somewhere ray charles is smiling down on him. Hard song to sing. Great job. May god bless america. May god bless our troops.

  14. I wouldn't call him a bad singer but his voice doesn't please my ears at all. He has the same tone through the entirety of every song he has done. There's just no character to his voice at all.

  15. LOVE IT!!! He took my favorite patriotic song and took us to church with it! Ray Charles would be proud 🙏🙏🙏

  16. All he's getting from me is a "GIGANTIC EYE ROLL" for this cheesy and desperate song choice… This tune belongs in a stadium and/or 4th of July celebrations. A clear fail!

  17. Blake loves picking patriotic songs so he can get the older generation votes!! Blake is so smart when it comes to song choices

  18. Ever wonder how the contestants on The Voice choose the songs that they sing? They don’t exactly.

    It turns out that it’s a joint decision. If it were only up to the singers, they’d all pick the same songs, says executive producer Audrey Morrissey.

    What happens is that the contender gives the producers a list of the songs he would like to perform.

    “We have several recordings of (the contestants). We’ve seen them in person. We listen to them again. We cross reference with their list. Then we think, ‘OK, what is the right song for them to get a push?’ That’s all we’re thinking about,” says Morrissey.

    “What song do we feel they can handle? … Often times artistes are not clear on what kind of artiste they want to be. Sometimes they’re just putting songs on their list that they love and they’re not really thinking about their personal statement.

    “I can tell you this: regardless of what people may say at the moment, there is no person that goes on that stage that the song that they ultimately perform and end up with isn’t a song that derived from their list, or was inspired by their list. “Or that they did not raise their hand and say, ‘I don’t feel good about this.’ At any point they can, and their song will be changed.” – Tribune News Service

  19. I don't get the hate. He's an American singing about his love for God and America…. sang the song better than anyone I've ever heard

  20. Smart song choice considering this show is all about votes, not so much talent, even though Gary is talented AF

  21. So sad he sold his soul in order to win…. Be more brave choose other songs not something about A.M.E.R.I.C.A. I hope he should sing about Africa.

  22. i live overseas and so appreciate the USA even with its flaws . so very special . thank you for singing that song

  23. Ray Charles version ……………..brilliant shows off his voice well .To all you ANTI -American fools .get over it

  24. I honestly think we needed to her this songs again to understand know and remember what a beautiful country we are when we come together. Here has been so much hurt fans pain cause from so much evil in this world shootings, bridges collapsed and different political views when the true of it all is that we all apart of this nation which make it beautiful different and unique in so many ways. Coming together is what America was build on I don’t honk we should every forget what we are and who we stand for as a nation. Great job man of go great job i say to you…

  25. At the very start, I was saying "Oh No, why this song on a talent competition." However, Gary went on to completely nail it!!! Truly, I thought it was the best performance from both days!!! Surprising, but isn't that the way you set yourself apart from the crowd!?!

  26. I personally loved it and don’t understand the negativity. My favorite rendition. This took me to church !!

  27. What a magnificent job!!!!!!
    It was good to see some pride, as every citizen should have for their country.
    I may not like all the choices made by the leaders of my country (including State & local). BUT I do love this Country and pray for it – and the whole world.
    And if you look around the world – present and past – you see people who also may not always agree with each other on governance, but you don't see them hating their country.
    Why are 'we' so willing to hate this country??
    All these negative commenters need to get some perspective!

  28. I love this guy…a good time to remind people of America and patriotism…Something our country needs more of!!

  29. His voice and abilities are so much better than some who made it into the next round! Beautiful voice. I’m shocked he has been eliminated

  30. He should have went through. Great voice!! I actually liked his rendition of this song. Of course I'm a sucker for this song because i love this country so much. Seems like no one cares about this country anymore. I just don't get it. I served during one war, only to hear people talk badly about our country. People just don't understand the military men and women lay down thier lives daily to protect you and me from terrorist who are coming up through Mexico . These are really bad guys!! Sorry got off track a bit. Love the song.
