It's hard to forget the impression Hannah Goebel made during her audition for The Voice. She was a clear favorite since all four judges wanted her on their respective teams.


The Omaha singer hadn’t performed on the singing competition since her audition episode where she joined coach Kelly Clarkson’s team. She was expected to perform on Tuesday’s episode, March 27, but she dropped out of the show for personal reasons.

According to Country Music Nation, host Carson Daly made a brief announcement regarding Hannah's departure from the show during the last episode and contestant Alexa Cappelli ended up winning the Battle round by default due to Hannah's exit.

Hannah's departure appears to have been last minute, as she recorded the Pray single in the studio with Alexa. In addition, NBC's press materials for the show include photos showing both girls meeting with Kelly and her team advisor Hailee Steinfeld to discuss their performance.

During the Blind Auditions, Hannah earned a four-chair turn with her powerhouse performance of Alicia Keys’s If I Ain’t Got You, and she was the contestant that made Clarkson use her Block bottom. Hopefully, Hannah is doing all right and will return to singing very soon.


The promising singer is a graduate of Westside High School and performed in the Omaha Blues Society’s BluesEd youth development program. Her parents, Mark and Becca Goebel, live in Omaha. Goebel now lives in Nashville while she pursues a career in music.

Hannah has always struggled in school, suffering from ADHD and a vision disorder called convergence insufficiency that makes it hard for the eyes to focus. Fortunately, music gave her an outlet where she could excel.

In 2014, she connected with a Nashville producer who convinced her to make the move. With the support of her family, Hannah remains in Nashville working on new music and co-writing with other R&B, soul, and even reggae artists.

On Wednesday, March 28, the singer posted an Instagram message that does not explain her mysterious withdrawal from the show but does assure fans that she’s OK and looking forward to creating and recording original music.

She also thanked the show, her fellow contestants, and fans for the support they showed following the airing of her blind audition.
