16 year old Emily Keener gave an outstanding performance on March 1, 2016, when she sang Elton John’s Yellow Brick Road for her blind audition on The Voice.
NBC’s The Voice, is a singing competition in which successful contestants are matched with one of four coaches who will guide them through their performances. During the auditions the coaches listen with their backs to the stage. If a singer captures their attention they turn around in the hopes of landing that singer for their team.
Emily’s voice captivated the coaches, inspiring all four to turn their chairs. Emily was one of only four contestants who had the honor to choose from all four coaches. She selected singer/producer, Pharrell Williams as her coach.
Emily’s audition was especially exciting for us, since she has performed here at the Barking Spider several times over the past few years. We first met Emily and her family when she was thirteen and have been honored to watch her singing evolve. We’ve felt very proud of Emily with her distinct vocals and poise, for such a young lady.
She’s captivated us, hopefully she’ll tackle The Voice in the same way. All the best to Emily!
We hope you’ll all join us in watching her progress through the competition.
The Voice airs at 8:00 pm Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC. We expect that Emily’s performance in the battle rounds will take place the week of March 21st.
