Lee Dewyze wasn’t a huge name before 2009. In fact, he was working as a paint salesman, after getting expelled from high school. He tried out for the audition in the ninth season of American Idol only because of the persuasion by his friend. He sang Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” and earned the golden ticket to Hollywood. He later went on to win the show!
During the coaches’ choice week, Simon Cowell chose Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” as Lee’s next song. Lee got on the stage and sang this song with perfection. The emotion he showed while performing was unbelievable. Leonard Cohen passed away on November 10, but covers like this is the reason why he will never be forgotten.
