Country Singer Sheena Brook Joins ‘The Voice’ With Sugarland Cover [Watch]
The Voice met its final country music contestant on Tuesday night (March 14) with 33-year-old Sheena Brook of Fort Myers Beach, Fla.
Before taking the stage to sing Sugarland's hit, "Baby Girl," Brook revealed that the album the song appears on, Twice the Speed of Life, was the first one she bought for herself. While highly influenced by rock and hip-hop, Brook says her heart is ultimately in country music and that the genre "just comes out of me naturally."
Her performance of the song showed off her strong voice and led coach Adam Levine to turn his chair almost instantly and, being the sole turner, guaranteed Brook a slot on the show and completing Levine's team. Resident country guru Blake Shelton was bopping and singing along to the track along with Brook.
"You have so many things working for you," her new coach commended, calling her "incredible" and saying that he wants to take a country singer "all the way to the top," with Shelton even admitting that Brook could be the country singer Levine uses to champion him in the genre.
But the country star made out well himself, scoring pop singer Dawson Coyle of New Jersey, whose positive message with his performance of Needtobreathe's "Happiness" prompted Shelton to turn his chair at the last minute (being the only judge to do so) to excitedly fill the last slot on his team. The superstar cited Coyle's "absolute passion and how much of yourself you pour into your performance" as his favorite element of the young singer, adding that he was looking for talent to fill the pop void on his team.
Tuesday's episode marks the seventh and final round of Blind Auditions for Season 12. The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC at 8PM ET.
