Emotional Fleetwood Mac Cover On The Voice Moves Coaches To Tears

Alexa Wildish experienced a dream-come-true moment after auditioning for Season 24 of The Voice. She got all four coaches to turn for her rendition of the beloved Fleetwood Mac song, “Songbird.”

“Songbird” was written solely by Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie. She also performed the vocals. The song received renewed attention following McVie’s death on November 30, 2022 at the age of 79.

Stefani offered her praise, saying “…there was just something so real about [the performance].

McEntire jumped in with her own compliments. She told Wildish she “felt a really peaceful feeling when [she was] singing.”

Who Did Alexa Wildish Choose As Her Coach?

After the coaches all had a chance to speak, Wildish was left to choose the team she wanted to join. It seemed like an impossible decision to make.

How do you make a choice like this?!” she exclaimed.

After some thought, Wildish declared she wanted to join Team Niall! She later confessed she had no idea who she would pick, but once she said Horan’s name, it just felt right.
