When 10-year-old Arthur Bolzonella took to the stage on «The Voice Kids,» he wasted no time in mesmerizing the audience with his rendition of a Bob Dylan classic. It was a powerful performance that showcased his remarkable talent.
For his blind audition, the young prodigy, Arthur, chose to perform Bob Dylan’s iconic track, «Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.» His song choice proved to be a winning one as all three coaches turned their chairs around in admiration. Ultimately, it was Louis Bertignac whom Arthur selected as his coach!
The song itself has been sending shivers down people’s spines ever since it was featured in the 1973 film «Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid.» Bob Dylan released the single «Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door» a few months later, and it quickly became a global sensation.
It comes as no surprise that Bob Dylan’s music has continued to inspire countless artists over the decades. His songs remain timeless and are passed down from one generation to the next, just as they did for Arthur. Certain melodies have the power to evoke deep emotions, and legendary singer Bob Dylan’s work has been touching hearts since the early 1960s, a legacy that endures to this day.
There are some songs that have the capacity to bring tears to your eyes no matter how many times you hear them, and the lyrics of «Mama, take this badge off of me – I can’t use it anymore. It’s gettin’ dark, too dark for me to see – I feel like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door…» are one such example.
