‘The Voice of Somerset’

Brandon Roush advances on NBC competition


Somerset —

Roush performed a Joe Cocker-esuqe version of the Beatles tune “With a Little Help From My Friends” and has been compared to the bluesy singer Cocker numerous times so far while on the show, said Kimberly. And indeed, Roush has gotten by with help from his friends — and his fans here in Somerset, the same ones that Kimberly said nearly crashed her phone with excited calls and texts Tuesday night.
“He’s so sweet, just a good guy,” said Bourne. “He didn’t need our (MMF’s) help for sure. We’re blessed to have him this summer. I think America, when they see him in more than a minute and a half, (will see that). He really is different than your typical pop star.”
Different in one way for certain — Somerset can call him its own.
