In front of the most notorious judging panel in the country, Asia’h took a risk and performed LeAnn Rimes’ power ballad “How Do I Live.” A challenging song for anyone to perform, Asia’h‘s breaking voice persevered through the emotional stress of losing her father just days before. You could tell that the standout American Idol audition performance, ultimately dedicated to her father would be the precursor to a momentous tribute to come. Composed by her mentor Kenny Babyface Edmonds, “Daddy’s Song” is sprinkled with his signature touches–from the vivid storytelling to the delicate arrangement– which allow Asia’h’s voice to soar over the music. Branding an impression as powerful as Boyz II Men’s “A Song for Mama,” “Daddy’s Song” is this era’s long-awaited ode to fathers.
