Coaches Who Turned: Usher, Shakira, Blake
Coach She Picked: Shakira
New York City native Cáthia was strutting her stuff on stage long before her Voice Season 4 debut on March 26. This pint-sized, feisty Latina attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts (aka the Fame school!), where she was classically trained. In addition to singing, Cáthia is a skilled songwriter and musician.
According to her Facebook page, some of her biggest performances to date include the Amateur Night Competition at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, where she placed first in three separate rounds, and the famed (no pun intended) Carnegie Hall. Not too shabby!
Cáthia also had the opportunity to sing for the The X Factor judges in 2012.
When it comes to musical influences, Cáthia is all about the divas, and it certainly shows in her voice. She lists Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Beyonce, and Selena as her biggest idols.
Ahem, what about her coach Shakira?! We'll forgive Cáthia for that oversight, and hopefully America will too!

Cáthia caught the attention of the coaches with her powerful rendition of “No Me Doy por Vencido” by Luis Fonsi, which she sang entirely in Spanish, earning her a three-chair turn from Shakira, Blake Shelton, and Usher.
Upon seeing the pint-sized singer, Adam shook his head and called himself an "idiot" for not turning.
Blake said he didn't understand a word of what she sang, while Usher simply flaunted his versatility. Not surprisingly, it was Cáthia's fellow Latina who eventually won her over. "You're meant to be global!" Shakira told the 19-year-old contestant. "You can take the world by storm!"
How do you say no to that? Answer: You don't!
