On August 6, 2011, it was Original Idol night on Immortal Song 2. G.O got to dance the Baby VOX choreography to Killer while singing the song with the group’s former leader from 1997 to 2005, Kan Mi Youn. Killer gave Baby VOX a Top Excellency Award at the Seoul Music Awards in 1999 and was a huge hit for the group. Of course, G.O settled into the song comfortably as if it was his very own, as per usual.
Duet. A performance by two people, especially singers. Two voices locked in perfect harmony, emotion and delivery. But, it is more than that. In a July 2012 interview with ABC News about sharing the stage with another vocalist in a duet, R&B singer Robin Thicke summed it up nicely when he said:
“It’s not about singing with perfect pitch or timing, it’s about feeling. All art is supposed to create feeling and if you sing with passion and you sing from your soul then people will feel it.”
People will feel it. I think he was talking about G.O, right? There is perhaps no truer way to describe the type of vocalist G.O set out to become and thus accomplished: A vocalist who sings with passion from the soul. Indeed. It may seem that all of the passion, emotion and feeling he brings to a song could not possibly be tempered (or matched) when partnered in a duet. I assure you, however, there is something special about the way G.O settles into a duet and lends his passion, emotion and feeling to the dynamic. For me, this is yet another reason to love this very talented man and his incredible artistry as a vocalist.
