Never in a million years did I think someone could take the theme song to the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and turn it into a song that sounded like something I might actually want to listen to. Seretha Guinn did just that during the American Idol 2013 Charlotte auditions episode.
She wowed me, the judges and half of America with her soulful R&B version of the silly TV show theme song. She got four easy yeses and her Golden Ticket to Hollywood. Very well-deserved. Does she make it past Hollywood week? Check out our Top 40 spoilers list to find out.
