On May 5, Team Blake Shelton singer Audra McLaughlin gave a rousing performance of “Forgive” by Rebecca Lynn Howard.
Blake finds out that Audra always wanted to be on the show and to have Blake as her coach rather than the typical country singer’s goal of going through the Nashville grind, so this is basically a dream come true for the country artist! Alongside former The Voice contestant (and Team Blake alum) Gwen Sebastian, the crooner gives her some tips to really bring this heartbreak song home.
Audra delivered another strong country vocal performance, for sure but we can’t help but wonder who she is as an artist. We’re at the Top 8 and we still don’t really feel we know very much about her. Quick, tell us five facts about Audra. We’ll wait.
That aside, the coaches loved her performance. Shakira enjoys when Audra sustains in her upper register so effortlessly and calls her unstoppable, vocally. Blake couldn’t agree more, and found himself getting wrapped up in the performance. He predicts it’s going to be a good night for his artist.
