13-year-old girl stuns “The Voice” audience with powerful performance of “Meant to Be”
The 13-year-old sang the country hit, “Meant To Be,” during her blind auditions on “The Voice,” and it wowed the judges. Both judges, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, turned their chairs for the young hopeful.
NBC’s “The Voice” Season 15 finally kicked off, and the blind auditions are still on-going. During the October-2 episode, a teen girl named Regan Strange showed the judges what she’s got with her unique rendition of the song sang by Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line.
Despite her age, Strange proved that her voice has potential and that she has great stage presence.
Instead of the original upbeat tempo of the song, Strange opted to perform a slower version of “Meant To Be.” It was almost like a ballad, and the crowd was loving it.
As for the judges, Levine was the first one to turn his chair. He appeared to be very awed by Strange. It took some time, but Shelton ended up turning as well.
In the end, all went well for Levine as Strange eventually joined his team.
While convincing Strange, Levine said Strange’s vibe was of the likes of Danielle Bradbery’s. She was the winner on the show’s fourth season.
“You could go all the way here; I believe that,” Levine went on.
“Meant To Be” was released in October 2017 and it quickly became a big hit and reached the top spot of the Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Now, the song sets a record for being at the no. 1 spot for 44 consecutive weeks.
It has already beaten Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” for the longest run on the chart’s top spot.
