Blackbird by Carly Smithson

One of my two favorites from Season 7 of American Idol - neither of whom eventually won - can be credited with another great moment on the show, and delivering a fantastic cover of a John Lennon song. Carly Smithson, the Irish lass who makes her home in San Diego, California, with her husband, left the show far too soon, but lasted long enough to give this very special performance of Blackbird. Even today, I marvel at her voice. Since 2008, Smithson went on to be named the lead singer for the rock band We Are The Fallen, and earlier this year they released their first album. I reviewed the album here, and the first video here. But here is Carly singing Blackbird.
