Rachel Potter is a 29-year-old bartender from Nashville and has always dreamt about making in the country music business. Either she’s never given it a real shot or the people that she’s auditioned for are incompetent because this woman can sing her ass off.
I’m not a huge fan of shows like X-Factor and American Idol but I find them fascinating in the fact that they do provide an enormous stage for people like Rachel to showcase their talent. While you’re listening to this woman sing, and realize who she is singing in front of, it sinks in that her life is changed forever. She will never have to go back to being a bartender again. Even if she doesn’t win the X-Factor somebody is going to sign this woman and if she can put out other songs like this, she is going to make a ton of money someday.
Something tells me even Freddy Mercury would have approved of this performance.
If you’d like something to contrast Potter’s performance with check out Freddy nailing this song during the recording of the Queen Rock Montreal album.
