It’s a hard task to deliver a fresh take to a Beatles song. But Theo Tams manages to expertly craft a defining performance of “I Wanna Hold Your Hand.” His voice swoops with a delicate agility, massaging each lyric with a supple hand. “When I touch you, I feel happy inside / It’s such a feelin’ that my love / I can’t hide,” he sings before crescendoing into the rafters. He nearly blows the roof off the joint, and for good reason. “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” in his very capable hands is a song made in heaven.
