'Voice' contestant amazes groom and guests by charming song during wedding ceremony
Country singer Casi Joy, who burst into the mass public eye in 2017 when she appeared on the TV show "The Voice," surprised her groom and wedding guests by wonderfully singing her vows.
In February 2018, Joy, 28, took to her personal Facebook account to share what she called a "personal" performance. Follow us on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa, to learn more and scroll down to watch the video below.
"In honor of Valentine’s Day, this week’s [Music Monday] is a very personal one. My vows. I didn’t tell a soul that I was planning to sing my vows at our wedding except for the dj and pastor. Not even my mom!" she wrote.
Joy tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend, Bryan Lankford, on October 14, 2017, during an outdoor ceremony at The Legacy at Green Hills in Kansas.
Instead of reciting her vows, she decided to surprise her groom and wedding guests with a song that she penned herself called "I Do."
"I wrote this song in complete secret, on my phone, and without ever being able to sing it out loud or work on it around anyone. That was nearly impossible being that Bry and I spend every second together," she explained.
"I recorded the guitar in my car! So what you’re seeing is the second time I even got to sing it, and I’ve [never] been so nervous!"
As chance would have it, Joy, who has been involved in music career from the age of five, included lyrics in the song about it raining on her big day. It turns out that it does indeed rain on her wedding day.
"The universe is a crazy thing, but it seems to like our crazy kind of love," she wrote.
During the season 12 of "The Voice," the powerhouse vocalist left the judges - Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys, and Blake Shelton - speechless with her performance.
Joy showed off her incredible country music skills with a rendition of the song “Blue” by LeAnn Rimes, and she earned the four-chair turn that so many contestants dream of getting.
