Cry is a song originally recorded by Angie Aparo for his 1999 album The American. It later became a hit single for country singer Faith Hill. It is also the coronation song and debut single for season 3 Voice USA winner Cassadee Pope.
Faith Hill versionEdit
Released as the lead single off of her fifth studio album of the same name, the song became a hit for Hill, hitting number 12 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and number 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart, where it stayed for 11 weeks. It earned Hill a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
Cassadee Pope versionEdit
For the Voice's final performance show, Pope chose to sing "Cry" at the suggestion of her coach Blake Shelton. Her performance of it was breathtaking, clearly impressing all the coaches. The song helped secure Pope's victory even though some critics claim that her version of the Miranda Lambert hit "Over You" may have done that.
Pope's version of "Cry" peaked at number 60 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 53 on the Canadian Hot 100.
