Quick Facts about Bailey Rae, a Season 19 Contestant of 'The Voice'
The young teenager is part of the new group of participants who compete for the final prize. Since her blind audition, her talent and charisma have stolen the hearts of many.
Bailey Rae, 18, is a country music singer-songwriter who hails from a small town in Oklahoma and calls Texas home. Since she was thirteen, she has worked to make country music her career.
Before discovering her passion for country music, Rae had a genuine passion for competitive clogging, winning many state and national championships, in addition to competing in the world championship.
During her blind audition on “The Voice,” she was selected almost immediately for the Legend team, to their amazement at her talent and the inability of the other judges to choose her for having their teams full.
Later during the duel, Rae performed a song in duet, which once again left the judges in awe of her voice and performance. By choosing her as the winner of the duel, she continues on her way to the grand finale.
LEGEND'S OR SHELTON'S TEAM
Although Rae was selected to join Team Legend, with Johnny Legend as a coach, Judge Blake Sheldon plans to add her to his team. Legend was the only one to turn but Sheldon and Sally Clarkson wanted to.
At the end of Rae's presentation, Sheldon was completely sincere in saying that he wanted her for his team and that he planned to steal her from Legend when he spoiled everything with her because he is a great man and friend but a lousy coach, all between laughs, of course.
At the end of her song, Rae introduced herself to the judges saying her age and explaining that she comes from a beautiful little town called Roberta, Oklahoma. At the teenager's words, Judge Sheldon did not hesitate to surprise everyone with her comment.
He told everyone that he must have passed Rae's front door several times and that he must have left some garbage in her yard. To which Rae replied: "ah, was that you?" following the current of the judge's comment that they are neighbors.
As mentioned above, Rae developed a passion for clogger dancing from a very young age. She prepared a lot and during the entire time she was competing she won several national championships.
She was also one of the participants in the world competition with her team. Then when she turned thirteen, she decided to change dance for country music and dedicate herself to learning to sing and compose.
Another of Rae's passions also has to do with music and is that the young woman is a passionate collector of vinyl or acetate records. It has a collection with more than 100 copies.
Who instilled in her the passion for these records was her great great grandmother, who also inherited many of the vinyl that she currently has in her collection, which includes artists such as Dolly Parton and Merle Haggard.
THE DWELL WINNER
The song that Rae sang in a duet with fellow contested Sid Kingsley, was "Tennessee Whiskey," originally by Chris Stapleton. Both contesters artfulness and vocal performance were flawless.
Unfortunately, only one of the two could be named the winner of the challenge, and the winner was, unsurprisingly, Bailey Rae. But not everything went bad for Kingsley, after all, because as he walked off the stage after the performance, Clarkson sounded her signal to welcome him into Team Clarkson.
