      ​@The Great And Powerful Turtle I wouldn't by any means compare this to the "Disturbed version"..... The power isn't there! He is however an incredible singer...

  • Francis Castiglione
    Francis Castiglione 13 days ago +256

    The part I find so interesting about this, is the subtle changes he makes to the song (tempo/key/etc…) and, in my humble opinion, produces the best version of this song I’ve heard so far.

    • Daniel Lacey

      ​@itsJaeger except Disturbeds version is 100x better than this

      Wrong. Because the best Version is the Disturbed Version.

    • No body
      No body 5 days ago +5

      The changes were actually made by disturbed's version, they are not his, the only thing he did was essentially tone it a little bit cause he can't reach Disturbed's vocalist vocal range.

    • Dia Smith
      Dia Smith 8 days ago +3

      The changes he made are so much more interesting than a lot of other covers while sounding very true to the original song. It's phenomenal.

    I’m 60+ years old and I have never comprehending the words to the song that’s completely as I did listening to Tom. His version emphasized the true meaning of this song like nothing I’ve ever heard. This was a concert not a contest.!!!

    I've given vocal lessons and Tom Ball has a naturally MASTERED, voice and note, pitch. I know that I've listened to this at LEAST 15 times already and am still just, AMAZED at his talent! He makes you FEEL the song. And what a humble soul he is. His voice is like it's , heavenly!! Sorry Simon and Garfunkel BUT Tom took his rendition and took your song to heaven's ears!! Whew!! 👏👏👏👏👏👍👍👍👍

      Jake Campbell Day ago

      I've been running an analog and digital soundboard for 20 years, and I completely agree. Also at 5:38, he produced two separate tones at once which is absolutely incredible since reverb or effects isn't allowed to be used in auditions like this.

      Has nobody heard David Draiman’s version of “The Sound of Silence”from the band Disturbed???? If you haven’t your doing yourself a disservice because it’s AMAZING! Nobody even comes close to his performance.
      Simon and Garfunkel even heard David Draiman’s version and liked it so much because he actually hits the feeling the song going for when they wrote it. Simon said as far as he was concerned David now owns the rights to this song. That’s how good it is.

      Procurem viver em paz com todos e busquem a santificação, sem a qual ninguém verá o Senhor.
      Hebreus 12:14
      19 Arrependei-vos, pois, e convertei-vos, para que sejam apagados os vossos pecados, e venham, assim, os tempos do refrigério pela presença do Senhor.
      Atos Cap. 3
      Vedes então que é pelas obras que o homem é justificado, e não somente pela fé. Porque, assim como o corpo sem o espírito está morto, assim também a fé sem obras é morta.
      Tiago 2:24,26
      16 Porque Deus amou o mundo de tal maneira que deu o seu Filho Unigênito, para que todo aquele que nele crê não pereça, mas tenha a vida eterna.
      17 Portanto, Deus enviou o seu Filho ao mundo não para condenar o mundo, mas para que o mundo fosse salvo por meio dele.
      19 E o julgamento é este: que a luz veio ao mundo, mas os homens amaram mais as trevas do que a luz, porque as suas obras eram más.

    Tom's voice is so uplifting. His voice quality reminds me so much of when Whitney Houston was at her peak. Clear diction and powerful and moving.

    When he switched from chest voice to head voice, the goosebumps came out to play. What an amazing performance. Hard to believe he's still a schoolmaster and not a recording artist.

    What makes Tom truly stands out is the way he articulates every word so beautifully when he sings and the control he has on his breathing. What an incredible performance!

      After watching over and over I would have to agree. He can get the song’s message across SO clearly. And then his vocals are from another realm altogether. It makes the total experience very powerful
