The Voice season 18 premiere week continues tonight (Feb 25). Check out a preview of Toneisha Harris performing Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is.” The 44 year old singer’s powerful and soulful alto gets coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas to hit their big red buttons.
Nick calls her vocal one of the most powerful that he’s ever heard–inside or outside the competition. “I would be honored to get to work with you,” he says. Kelly dubs her voice “a total blessing.”
Toneisha was set to audition for The Voice eight years ago. But her plans were put on hold after her son was diagnosed with Leukemia. She devoted all her time to caring for him. Now, two years into his remission, she is back following her dream. “You might have taken the time off,” says a tearful Kelly, “But your voice didn’t.”
“I was a coach back then when you were supposed to audition,” says Blake, “I’m still a coach now. You know experience goes a long way.”
John adds that she doesn’t need any coach to do well on the show. “You are already amazing,” he says. “You already deserve to be in the finale.”
Which coach will Toneisha pick? Tune into The Voice tonight on NBC at 8 pm ET/PT.
