Rene Bishop stunned the audience with his rendition of “Unchained Melody” during a spectacular audition round performance for “The Voice Holland.”


On stage, Bishop started the song as someone out of the ordinary - a much senior contestant in the show – and the audience didn’t really know what to expect from him.

However, as soon as Bishop started belting out the lyrics to the song, it was apparent that he was much more than your average singer.

The judges understood as well that a special talent stood amid them on stage. But they didn’t turn around quite yet as they were curious to hear more of what he had to offer.

Bishop’s fabulous audition on one of the biggest singing reality competition has been adored by the internet. It has been viewed more than one million times so far and has been liked by more than 16,000 viewers.


Over the past several seasons of the popular singing competition, several unexpected talents have presented their unique singing talent to surprise the judges, live audience, as well as people all over the world.
