Tuesday’s edition of “The Voice” marked the end of the Blind Auditions as all four coaches filled out their slates of 12 artists apiece. By the time that Jozy Bernadette performed a stripped-down version of The Guess Who 1970 rock classic “American Woman,” five-time champ Blake Shelton already had his full slate. Of the three remaining coaches, she got Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani to hit their buttons and turn (watch above).
While Levine tried to win her over, this 25-year-old from Grand Forks, ND opted to become the final artist on Stefani’s team as she identified most with her musical stylings.
As per her official NBC bio: “Jozy began performing at a young age, balancing music with her other passion, basketball. Her father had a brief stint in the NBA but retired due to injury. She decided to quit basketball after high school to focus on singing, while her boyfriend continues to play professionally in Belgium. At 18, Jozy competed in a singing contest, which allowed her to record an EP. She sang at weddings and then in 2016 moved to Minneapolis to pursue music opportunities. Instead, she landed a job as a staffing recruiter and finds it difficult to pursue her musical interests.”
