Every so often, a song comes along that has the power to transform you. Even if just for a few moments, a particular piece can transport you to a different time and place entirely. “Unchained Melody” is one such song, and this version is guaranteed to move you.
Even if you don’t know all the words, it only takes a few seconds to recognize the classic tune. Sung with passion and precision, this version may very well be one of the best.
Though it’s been around for decades, “Unchained Melody” was made famous the first time by the Righteous Brothers in 1965. While it received a good deal of popularity back then, it wasn’t until 1990 that it became universally known and loved by an even wider audience, this time thanks to the Blockbuster movie Ghost. Even now, many people still associate the hypnotic song with the hit movie.
What makes this song even more spectacular is the fact that it has been sung by countless artists since its original debut in 1955. Every singer puts their own special spin on the classic, and this version is no exception.
When Jonathan Jackson was invited to the Grand Ole Opry to perform “Unchained Melody,” the audience was in for a real treat. The actor, known for his recurring role in the daytime soap “General Hospital” stunned the crowd with his powerful vocals. Amplified in the famous arena, the performance does not disappoint. If fans of the actor didn’t know he could sing then, they’re in for a big surprise now! In fact, it’s hard to believe that singing isn’t his full-time job!
From the first note, the emotionally charged performance will have you turning up the volume for more. Not only does he hit the notes with ease, but he sings with such intense feeling that it’s hard not to get sucked into the show. It’s almost as fun watching him sing as it is to listen.
