“It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” by an old man who can sing stuns the judge.
There are a lot of young performers on stage these days who want to make it big. But you’ve probably noticed that seniors don’t get as much attention as they should, which is a crying shame.

Now, though, “The Voice” is changing all of that with “The Voice Senior,” a talent show just for older people. In order to compete, contestants must be at least 60 years old. The time is right for this idea, and people from all over the world are tuning in.

Jimi Bellmartin couldn’t have gotten “The Voice Senior” at a better time. When you hear him sing, you’ll understand why the 69-year-old soul singer got the most votes and was named the winner and champion of Season 1 of The Voice Senior.

About five words into his song, Jimi sounds so much like the late Godfather of Soul, James Brown, that all the judges hit their buzzers and turned their chairs around to show they wanted him on their team.

Backstage, Jimi’s family was watching the show on a monitor. Even though they knew he was good, they are completely shocked when the coaches turn around so soon. We put up a video of Jimi’s amazing performance so you can see and hear for yourself how great it was.

The 69-year-old singer chose “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” by James Brown and Betty Jean Newsome for his audition song. Brown recorded it on February 16, 1966, and later that year, he put it out as a single. It was number one on the R&B chart and number eight on the Hot 100 chart. Its name is a play on the title of the 1963 comedy movie “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.”

“It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” was a staple of Brown’s live shows for the rest of his career. It had a slow, simmering beat and a vocal line that sounded like someone was shouting. This made it good for long, open-ended performances that included spoken thoughts on love and loss and sometimes parts of other songs.

Jimi has been singing all his life, but he has never had a big break because of it. In the 1980s, it seemed like it was still possible, but then his mother got sick.

In an interview, Jimi said, “I’ve been taking care of her for at least eight years.” “I had to choose between helping my mother and getting famous. It was easy to decide. Always put your mother first.” So, for almost ten years, Jimi took care of his mother.

“After that, it wasn’t easy for an artist to get back into the public eye. I thought, “I’ll start up again one gig at a time, but that took a long time.” So he could get here, his grandchildren begged him to join the talent show. “I told them not to get their hopes up because it’s possible that the chairs won’t turn around.”

In the final stages of the show, the singer faced off against three equally talented competitors: Annet Hesterman (68), Georges Lotze (61), and singer Noble (71). In the end, the soulful performer was named the winner and champion of The Voice Senior.

Watch Jimi play “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” and decide for yourself how good he is. Then tell a good friend about this.
