Former Backup Singer Nails 4-Chair Turn With Country-Soul ‘Voice’ Audition

YouTube/The Voice

Storming the stage with what will surely be one of the most powerful voices this season, this former backup singer took a beloved 60s country-soul hit and made it completely her own! 

With all four ‘Voice’ coaches listening intently, 30-year-old Keisha Renee brought them all to church with a soul-piercing rendition of “I Can’t Stop Loving You” that had each and every one of them fighting over her by the end of the song! 

“I Can’t Stop Loving You” was originally written and recorded by classic country legend Don Gibson and later saw Ray Charles issue his own hit version of the tune. In the decades since Charles stole the No. 1 position with his soulful version, famous singers like Elvis Presley, Conway Twitty, Van Morrison, Martina McBride, and many more have recorded covers of it, too. 

Throughout this riveting and full-hearted performance, Renee soars through the verses and notes in such a way that coach Jennifer Hudson gets so excited she throws her booklet toward the stage in celebration. 

With all four chairs turned at the end of this mighty masterpiece, Renee was left with one of the toughest decisions a young singer could ever face: who to pick as her coach!

Watch the full performance below and let us know who you think she should pick as her coach in the comments!
