The song was first recorded by Garnet Mimms and the Enchanters in 1963. ‘Cry Baby’ has been performed by a many artists since including British singer-songwriter Joss Sone, American singer Alison Iraheta and Hungarian singer Magdolna Rúzsa. Performances of the song have notably featured in blind auditions on The Voice reality TV franchise.
These performances often stand out given the vocal skill required to sing the (almost screaming) chorus of this song. Notable performances include Poland’s Natalia Sikora in 2017, The UK’s James Byron in 2014 and American Alisan Porter’s 2016 playoff performance.
