NBC's The Voice is back with a new season and loads of fresh vocal talent. The singing competition kicked off its 13th season with blind auditions being judged by Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus.
In last night's episode, we saw all four judges battling over Brooke Simpson, from the Haliwa-Saponi tribe! Check out her audition!
A here's a little bit about Brooke Simpson from NBC's The Voice:
From: Hollister, North Carolina
Current City: Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Brooke is a full-blooded Native American from the Haliwa-Saponi tribe. She grew up on tribal grounds with 4,000 Native Americans, including most of her family. Every year they have a powwow and celebrate their traditions just like their forefathers. She discovered her love of music at age seven when she started singing with her parents. They are full-time evangelists and would take trips every weekend in their RV to different churches to sing as a family, leading praise and worship. Brooke has been performing for many years and it's gotten to the point where she has started to look for a plan B, so a lot is riding on this audition.
I'd say she killed the audition!!!!
Check out an older video of her on YouTube, just absolutely nailing this James Brown cover.
We'll be rooting for you Brooke!
