The Voice is over! And 16-year-old Chevel Shepherd is the winner. The win came as a pleasant surprise to fans especially the singer's coach; Kelly Clarkson.

Chevel Shepherd was crowned the winner of the just concluded Season 15 singing show on Tuesday and her coach Kelly Clarkson, who couldn't contain her joy ran up to congratulate the singer in tears.


Chevel's victory marks Kelly's second win in a row. The judge (Kelly) whom recently burst into tears after rejecting a fan also won last season with her student; Brynn Cartelli.


The sixteen-year-old beat the competition of Team Blake Shelton’s "Kirk Jay and Chris Kroeze" and Team Jennifer Hudson’s "Kennedy Holmes" who were all in the final to clinch the prize.


While Chevel Shepherd was a powerful contender, she was not the crowd's favorite. Her victory came as a shock to many fans of the show.

She was joined on stage by an over-excited family including her aged grandfather who could not hold back his joy.


Behind Shepherd was Kroeze, whom was second. Jay was third place, leaving Holmes the fourth position.

Despite her petite frame, standing at just 4’10”, Chevel mannaged to stand out throughtout the competition; thanks to her very powerful vocals. During the period of the show, she fearlessly took on musical legends like LeAnn Rimes and Loretta Lynn.

Chevel told reporters in an interview how she learned to yodel from a video her mom showed her when she was just eleven. After seeing that interview, she picked so much interest in the art and continuously practiced it.


“I've been listening to country since I was tiny. You can tell the story of the song to people.” - Chevel said shortly after her victory.

On her win, the teenager who seemed like she could not wrap her head around the fact that she had just won said:

“I'm still hyperventilating."
