Bob Dylan’s ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’ Covered by Former Race Car Driver on ‘The Voice’

Benji, a former Formula One race car driver who has abandoned the gear shift in favor of picking up a microphone, turned in a hellfire version of Bob Dylan‘s ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’ on last night’s (Sept. 18) blind auditions episode of ‘The Voice.’

Benji, 24, had a raspy tone, but it wasn’t a one speed, one note or one trick pony-style. He displayed an impressive set of dynamics and showed unexpected range. In addition to showing off his husky low end, he also slayed the high notes, offering a scream “that should be heard by the entire world,” as coach Adam Levine said. Benji eventually selected Levine as his coach, choosing him over Cee Lo Green. The rock dudes need to stick together.

Believe it or not, Benji had some Axl Rose qualities to his voice, and since Guns N’ Roses did record a rather popular cover of this Dylan classic, the comparisons were obvious. Benji boasted more of a dapper, clean cut look, but his image didn’t matter when his voice was so powerful and strong. The rest will follow.

Since he has a quintessential rocker/belter voice, we expect to see/hear him tackle more classic rock anthems from Benji this season.
