Jason Castro “American Idol” Video | Beautiful Acoustic Take on “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

25 sec read

Jason Castro has had a difficult American Idol journey. His sweet brand of mellow guitar-driven goodness is so unlike anything the competition has seen before, and the judges haven’t always known how to take it.

Through it all though, Jason’s stayed true to himself. You won’t catch this guy reaching for the big notes or wailing on an electric guitar. It’s just not his style. Sometimes that draws criticism, but on nights like last night all the pieces fall together.

Here he sings the stunning stripped back version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow made famous by Israel Kamakawiwo Ole. It’s brilliant and heartfelt, but I think Jason always is. The big difference is that here the judges agree.
