Morgan Myles knocks the judges’ socks off with her stunning performance of “Hallelujah”.
In a new season preview, the singer took part in a blind audition on “The Voice” during which she impressed with her soulful singing and guitar playing.
The Nashville native marched up to the microphone with an acoustic guitar in hand and performed Leonard Cohen’s lyrics—while strumming out the song’s music—to highlight her powerful voice range.
She was subsequently invited to perform on the program. All four judges expressed their desire to have her on their team, and she received a coveted four-chair turn.
John Legend praised her performance, saying it was one of the best he had seen “in quite a long time”.
“Then we got to see your range and you hitting those piercing, beautiful notes. It was exquisite. One of the best blind auditions I’ve seen in quite a long time.”
To the surprise of everyone, Myles confessed she had opened a few festivals for judge Blake Shelton, in between singing demos for songwriters.
The country singer shared her experience of his early days, recalling when he sang demos and played festivals.
“When I moved to Nashville, I was 17 years old and I started singing demos for songwriters, and that was where I made all my beer money,” Shelton then continued by saying that he could relate to Williams and his experiences.
Season 22 of “The Voice” airs on Sept. 19.
