Marshmello & Bastille Perform on The Voice
Season 15 of The Voice brought out old holiday tunes and new ones as DJ Marshmello and British band Bastille performed their latest single ‘Happier‘. Last night, the live finale concluded with one of the four finalists (Kennedy Holmes, Chevel Shepherd, Chris Kroeze, Kirk Jay) crowned the winner. For the holiday season, Voice coaches Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson sang “O Holy Night” together. New Voice coach, John Legend, and Esperanza Spalding sang “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” off his new album A Legendary Christmas.
We all know the song–this feel-good anthem would be nothing without the voice and lyrics. Taken aback by how the UK band portrayed the song, Mr. Mello says the amount of emotion you feel is insurmountable. This song is about someone trying to let go of a relationship they don’t want to let go of. But like with all good things that must come to an end, the goal is to have them be happier.
The official music video reveals a relationship of a girl and her dog. Miranda Crosgrove portrays the girl and she has to put her dog to sleep–a hard decision for anyone that confides in their dog as their best friend. While not the happiest video, the ironic title has a greater purpose.
For anyone that has ever needed help moving forward, this song is for you. Do we still need to figure out who this white masked artist is? I think we should just be happy with everything he has given us so far.
Congrats Mello for not only surpassing making music, but also becoming a Ninja Warrior, and making it onto the cover of Forbes. You also inspire us on Primetime television! View the video below and try not to shed a tear.
