Songland Season 2 Episode 4 Recap:
In episode 4, we meet four new recording artists. CKAY, a singer/songwriter from New York City performs to her creation “Heroes”, which is about not being answerable to anyone. Martina is impressed by the candidate’s strong voice while Ryan Tedder believes that the chorus and the pre-chorus need some refinement. The panel compares her song to Adele’s numbers and pairs her up with Shane McAnally in the studio.
Next up is 19-year-old H A L I E from Missouri. She sings a song called “Girls Like Me”, which is about how many girls are afraid of being themselves, thinking of what people might say. Martina suggests tweaking the lyrics a bit and Halie is paired up with Ester Dean in the studio. Third, we have WOLVES, a duo from Los Angeles, comprising Marc Avery and Sean Carney. They sing a song called “Miracle” but unfortunately, they are eliminated in this round.
Finally, we have Jeffrey James who performs to “We Can Be (Heroes).” He is sent to work with Ryan Tedder. In the next round, CKAY’s song is a lot faster while H A L I E compels Martina to shed tears with her performance. Jeffrey delivers an emotional performance, coupled with background singers. Ultimately, the winning song is “Girls Like Me” by H A L I E and Ester Dean. Halie had already stated that Martina is one of her country music idols. So the whole moment is truly special for the winning contestant.
