Morgan Frazier Gives ‘Lips of an Angel’ a New Twist on ‘The Voice’
Morgan Frazier chose unexpected tune for her first live performance on The Voice, taking on “Lips of an Angel,” originally a rock tune covered by Jack Ingram. Frazier took it on from a female perspective, adding a new spin to the song.
Frazier was signed to a record deal at 16 by the same person who signed her coach, Blake Shelton, after working her way up from an album she recorded at age 9, which she gave Shelton as a gift during rehearsals. Shelton was impressed by her version of the song, noting her promising skill for a longterm career.
“This is a girl who has the potential to be a country star,” Shelton said.
The final performance showed off Frazier’s ability to shine on big notes and give the tune a feminine edge. The coaches loved the effortless, powerful quality of her voice.
“I love the tone in your voice,” Gwen Stefani said after the song ended.
“You’re like a country standard already to me,” Shelton gushed. “If people don’t vote you through they must be … full of hate."
