While studio recordings obviously matter to the strength of an artist's career, maybe the better display of their talents is the quality of their live show. Fans are captivated by a song, which leads them to a show, where they want to find out: does the power that captured them in the studio recording also surge onto the stage? Can the artist vocally deliver live as well as they do in the studio? Is the live performance maybe even better than the studio version?
One artist who nails each live performance, both in terms of vocals and entertainment, is pop singer Blanca. The powerhouse vocalist brings her all to the stage each time, making for a remarkable performance no matter the song. In honor of her brand new EP Real Love, we're taking a look at some of our favorite Blanca live performances.
1. "Who I Am" (Live at Winter Jam)
In this live performance video of her debut single from her 2015 Winter Jam set, Blanca displays all the elements that make her a great performer: crowd engagement, commanding vocals, fun stage presence and a powerful delivery of meaningful lyrics.
While it may be a cover song, Blanca brings every bit of her signature passion and vocal strength to this acoustic version of Jesus Culture's worship anthem.
3. "Who I Am" (Live at Air1)
Giving fans a stripped-down take on her breakout single, this in-studio acoustic performance of "Who I Am" proves that Blanca's voice is remarkable in every environment.
4. "Greater Is He" (Live at K-LOVE)
Another in-studio performance that stands out, the lyrical depth of Blanca's moving single "Greater Is He" gets to shine with this laid-back acoustic treatment.
5. "Real Love"
Blanca's latest single that's making big waves at radio with its empowering message of "Real Love," this live video captured at a conference in Florida earlier this year gives her phenomenal vocal the attention it deserves.
