How did Sa’Rayah receive a last-minute save from her coach Alicia Keys on Monday’s episode of “The Voice”? Watch her performance of “I’d Rather Go Blind” by Etta James and gauge the reaction from the studio audience and her coach. Did she deserve to move on to next week’s Top 12 over eliminated team members Josh Halverson and Kylie Rothfield? Was she even better than Christian Cuevas and We` McDonald, who both received enough votes on their own from the home audience to make next Monday’s episode?
Will Sa’Rayah be able to conquer the rest of the 11 competitors and join the past 10 winners in this photo gallery? Let’s look back at her season so far and background that led her to Season 11 of the Emmy-winning NBC reality show:
According to her official NBC bio, “Growing up, Sa’Rayah’s only outlet for music was at her church. She was forced to grow up quickly when her mother suffered from and overcame addiction. After only singing in church, Sa’Rayah was booked to sing for the “Night of Soul” event at a local venue in 2014. Sa’Rayah caught the attention of Richard Davis, founder of the local band Chicago Catz, who asked her to audition for the band. Sa’Rayah now performs at weddings and corporate events with the Chicago Catz and books solo performances when she can. She is currently going through a divorce and has moved back in with her parents with her two-year-old daughter, Nylah.”
Prior to this week’s live show, performances for the year by the Chicago native have been “Drown in My Own Tears” by Ray Charles (blind audition), “I’ll Take Care of You” by Bobby Bland (battle round), and “Ain’t Nobody” by Rufus and Chaka Khan.
