Joshua Davis and Sawyer Fredericks took to the stage during The Voice and blew us away with their fantastic rendition of Dobie Gray's "Drift Away"

"Drift Away" was originally recorded by John Henry Kurtz, but it didn't gain popularity until it was recorded once again a year later in 1973 by Dobie Gray. It instantly became Dobie's biggest hit, peaking at #5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was covered once more by Uncle Kracker and reached #1, and a dozen other times by big name artists like Waylon Jennings and Ray Charles

Joshua and Sawyer's vocals blend together so well together, giving us a sense of peace, which is exactly what the song is meant to do - give us comfort in a stressful time. A lot of people think that you have to have powerhouse vocal skills to make it in the business, but that's just not how it is. Their styles are more simplistic and relaxed and it's definitely a feast for the ears.

Check it out.

DRIFT AWAY - LYRICS

Day after day I'm more confused
Then I look for the light through the pourin' rain
You know, that's a game, that I hate to lose
I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame

Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Won't you take me away

Beginin' to think, that I'm wastin' time
And I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
And I'm countin' on you, you can carry me through

Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Won't you take me away

And when my mind is free
You know your melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitars come through to soothe me

Thanks for the joy you've given me
I want you to know that I believe in your song
And rhythm, and rhyme, and harmony
You helped me along, you're makin' me strong

Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Won't you take me away

Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Won't you take me away
