New York - On July 11, singing sensation David Cook performed an intimate, acoustic show at Stage 17 in New York City for the hit radio station 95.5 PLJ.
This event was hosted and facilitated by 95.5 PLJ air personality Ralphie Aversa. "How is everybody doing?" asked Raphie, prior to introducing American Idol winner and singer-songwriter David Cook to the 95.5 PLJ studio audience, for his inaugural Stage 17 performance.
In return, Cook praised Stage 17 for being an "awesome performance space location." Cook kicked off his acoustic set with a exceptional version of "Come Back to Me," where he was accompanied by Jeff Scott on acoustic guitar, and their soaring harmonies blended well together. His vocals were haunting yet powerful.
"Thank you very much," Cook said, graciously. "How are we doing tonight New York? Thank you WPLJ for having us!" He paid homage to the late Chris Cornell, by singing his smash single "Light On," which ironically enough, Cornell co-wrote with Brian Howes. This moving rendition displayed Cook's impressive upper register and harking voice. "I'm honored to be the voice of a song that Chris wrote," Cook admitted.
He closed by premiering his brand new single, "Gimme Heartbreak," which marked the first time that he ever played it live in an acoustic fashion. His rich vocals on "Gimme Heartbreak" were controlled and beautiful.
The Verdict
Overall, David Cook did an awesome job entertaining his fans and listeners at 95.5 PLJ's Stage 17. He gets better with age and experience, and always manages to put on the best shows. His live set garnered five out of five stars.
Prior to his show at 95.5 PLJ's Stage 17, David Cook sat down and chatted with Digital Journal.
