Rapper, singer and former auto-tune enthusiast T-Pain started the trend of auto-tune being a staple in Hip Hop and R&B music, but after Jay Z made it clear he was against auto-tune, T-Pain took a backseat and Future has emerged.

Regardless, T-Pain is determined to prove to the world that he doesn’t even need auto-tune and he has a great voice without it.

Now a writer at USA Today seems to agree and they were wowed by his recent performance of Sam Cooke’s classic “A Change is Gonna Come.”

  1. I think people should know by now this man can actually sing but he’s the one who messed his own career up with the obsession with auto tune. I still prefer him over Future though.

  2. He sounded good. I know he’s still working on his voice and I am glad to see he wants to be taken more seriously as an artist. I do think it’s sad he doesn’t get enough credit for how he changed the game. He has everyone wanting to use auto-tune now but no one sounds as good as he did because auto-tune doesn’t make a non-singer into a singer. If you can’t hold a note, you’ll sound bad even with the auto-tune. That’s why I don’t care for Future’s music.

  3. He should have never became dependent on auto-tune maybe he wouldn’t have got as big as quick but I really believe his career would be in better shape today. Depending on gimmicks can really hurt a career and T-pain is living proof of that. Rather make it and fall on your talent instead of making it for awhile with a gimmick and nobody realizing you actually had talent smh.
