Watch The Voice Season 13 singer Brooke Simpson show closing performance of Demi Lovato’s “Stone Cold.” The performance earned her a four chair turn. Eventually Brooke chose Miley Cyrus. “Our spirits are very similar,” said Brooke explaining why she chose Team Miley. The coaches enthusiastic style and commitment won Brooke over.
Twenty-five year old Brooke Simpson is grew up in an American Indian community in North Carolina. On her Facebook account she describes herself as “just a happy girl writing sad songs.” Posting covers of her singing on Youtube for over 9 years, she is no stranger to performing for an audience. Brooke lists her influences among others as Beyonce, James Arthur, Cher, and Miley Cyrus.

Instruments Brooke Plays: Unknown
Overall Thoughts: Holy crap, Brooke is really freaking talent! I didn’t expect to like her this much, but her covers are just incredibly impressive. I love that she is a very current artist, and with the right songs I see her doing really well this season. While there is a part of me worried about people not voting for her, I can’t deny her talent. My suggestion to Brooke is to always stick to current songs, and find ways to get creative with her performances. If she plays an instrument, I think she should definitely bring it out. Brooke is one of my personal favorites, and someone I’m rooting for.
