On March 4, 21-year-old singer Audra McLaughlin took The Voice stage to belt out “Angel From Montgomery” by Bonnie Raitt and John Prine. The Philadelphia native had a hard time growing up due to a learning disability. Audra recalled being bullied, which her father believes has inspired her songwriter, which he said “comes from the heart.” Now studying to join the medical field, the powerhouse vocalist picked up coach Adam Levine, followed by Blake Shelton, Shakira, and finally Usher.

Adam told the singer that she compelled him to turn his chair and hoped that, because he was first, he might have an edge. Usher added that he hoped to be the coach to bring her immaculate talent to the world. Shakira told the singer that her voice has sweetness, rasp, grit, and power and it only missed Shakira’s guidance. Blake noted that he took his time turning because his wife is the first person he'd heard sing that song and he was holding her to the high standard that is Miranda Lambert's voice. Eventually though, he saw sparks going off and says they spelled "Team Blake."

Apparently Audra’s gut also spelled Blake, because that’s the coach she chose.
