The Voice season 21 winners, Girl Named Tom just picked up a super-sweet gig. The sibling trio from Team Kelly Clarkson, known for their distinctive harmonies and heartfelt performances, will perform “America the Beautiful” during pre-race ceremonies for the 106thRunning of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday, May 29 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

NBC will televise the event beginning at 11 am ET.

Girl Named Tom, consisting of siblings Caleb, Joshua and Bekah Liechty, rose to fame on the fall 2021 cycle of The Voice, earning the distinction of being the first trio to win the NBC singing competition. Coached by Kelly Clarkson, who previously sang the national anthem three times at the Indianapolis 500, the trio earned her fourth victory as a coach.

Girl Named Tom have Indiana Roots

While Girl Named Tom calls the small town of Pettisville, Ohio, its hometown, the three members have strong Indiana ties. The sibling trio moved to South Bend, Indiana, last year, and both Caleb and Joshua graduated from Goshen College before forming Girl Named Tom with their little sister, Bekah.

“Caleb, Joshua and Bekah captured the attention of America during their winning run on ‘The Voice,’ and their performance will be one of the highlights of pre-race ceremonies,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “We welcome them back home again to Indiana along with the huge crowd on Race Day and live national TV audience on NBC and eagerly look forward to their rendition of this beautiful tribute to our great nation.

The trio is on tour now

Girl Named Tom released its first single, “Barrier Island,” independently in November 2019 and its first EP, “Another World,” the following month. On New Year’s Day 2021, the trio released a second single, “Backup Plan.” In February 2021, the vocal group released its first album, Hits from the Road, an album of covers. In addition, a holiday single, “No Snow for Christmas,” was released the day after The Voice finale, under Republic Records.

Currently Girl Named Tom are on a nationwide tour, playing concert dates all across the country. Check out their schedule HERE.
