The singing trio, Girl Named Tom wins The Voice season 21 in 2021. Of the three Leichty siblings–Bekah, Caleb, and Joshua–who gets to display the trophy? It turns out, the group handed it over to their high school in their hometown, Pettisville Ohio, hoping to inspire students to pursue their dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem.
“Handing The Voice trophy over to where it belongs: our small but mighty hometown, Pettisville, OH!,” the singers wrote on their Instagram account.
“We hope this trophy serves as a reminder”
“As you pass through the halls of the school, we hope this trophy is a reminder…” the caption read alongside photos and video of their official trip to the school.
“-of what can happen when people come together!
– ‘small town’ does not mean ‘small opportunity’
– it sure does take a village to raise children!
– The Liechty siblings are forever grateful for the love Pettisville has poured into their family and their harmony trio, Girl Named Tom. What an honor to be on the Pettisville sign!
– everyone has unique gifts, let’s use them well, and cheer each other on!!!”
The caption ends with a rallying cry for the sports team, “GO BLACKBIRDS!”
In a short clip, Caleb narrates the car ride the siblings took on their way to their alma mater. “Pettisville High School here we come…we’re bringing precious cargo in hand.” Bekah shows off the boxed trophy from the back seat. “Bekah, she thinks it’s her!” Caleb joked.
“We love you guys!!” a fellow hometown resident wrote in comments. “What an inspiration you have been to all of the kids at school and throughout the community.”
