The moment I heard him, I said, ‘this is a big talent.’ As a performer, Charles (CPIII) has an innate quality that you cannot teach, only guide. And in time, he will make the world smile.

Peoples (CPIII) has only continued to mature in his vocal and dramatic facility. His rendition of “I’ll Cover You (Reprise),” which ends with a grieving Tom Collins overcome and tearful on the floor, had no less of an effect upon the audience. One could only describe his method throughout the song as graceful, [and] powerful in just the fact that it was subtly handled.
