Top 16 Girls: Watch Zama Khumalo performing ‘Crazy’
Zama Khumalo performed ‘Crazy’ by Seal.
This song was written by Guy Sigsworth, who’s also worked with Madonna and Britney Spears (among many others). Produced by Trevor Horn in 1991 and recorded by Seal for his self-titled debut, it was a huge hit, reaching the top 10 in both the UK and US. Seal wrote the song in the wake of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Tiananmen Square massacre, when he says, “The world was changing and I felt profound things happening.” It won him an Ivor Novello award for songwriting, and it was memorably covered in 2005 by Alanis Morissette. The version Zama performs was the stripped-down, acoustic version Tori Kelly put together for an appearance on Sirius XM is 2015.
After she belted out to Mariah Carey and Beyoncé in Theatre Week, Zama switched gears and showed off just how sweet and serene her voice can be with a pitch-perfect performance of Seal’s 90’s banger.
Immaculate runs and vocal control, a voice that is at once as delicate as a butterfly yet earth-shatteringly powerful! Zama got rave reviews from the judges’ panel after a flawless cover of Seal’s ‘Crazy’.
