Joshua Ledet — The Heir Apparent to Sam Cooke
I'm not just saying this because Joshua is from this area. For my money, he is the best performer that has ever graced the stage on "American Idol".
A couple of weeks ago I told several people here at 92-9 The Lake that I wished Joshua would perform "A Change is Gonna Come", one of the best songs Sam Cooke ever recorded. I just felt that Joshua could do it justice. I was wrong.
Joshua Ledet didn't just do "the song justice" he owned it! Now, I know that comparing anyone to Cooke is blasphemy, but I'm here to tell you that young Joshua Ledet is indeed the heir apparent to Cooke. You be the judge!
I do try to post these videos with no stupid comments from the morons who make their post while mommy and daddy are out of the room, but I haven't found a way to do it. I have, however, discovered that, if you open Youtube using Google Chrome, you can turn off the "comments."
