Isla performed a stunning cover of “Summertime” during the Blind Auditions on The Voice Kids UK 2020 (Season 4).
“Summertime” is an aria composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. There are over 25,000 recordings of “Summertime”. A version by Billie Holiday was the first to hit the US pop charts, and peaked at number 12. Ella Fitzgerald, and Norah Jones also covered the song.
Isla’s rendition of Gershwin’s aria, which was peppered with amazing runs and riffs, earned a four-chair-turn from The Voice coaches plus a standing ovation from everyone in the studio.
