During Night 3 of “The Voice” Season 13, singer Hannah Mrozak‘s powerhouse rendition of Hailee Steinfeld‘s “Starving” caused Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Jennifer Hudson to turn their chairs turns before the song’s chorus even kicked in. After a long fight, Mrozak eventually chose to join Team Adam, becoming the first female artist on Levine’s roster. Watch Mrozak’s “The Voice” blind audition video above.
“Hannah, would you like to be on my team?” Levine asked her right up front, trying to bypass the deliberation process. “I tried to trick you, but you didn’t fall for it,” he smiled. “You could be a really proficient, skillful singer, but still not have tone. And because you have both, that’s what really sets you apart. People adore this style of music and it’s done wrong so many times, but when you hear someone do it right it’s so refreshing. I’m telling you, I know how to do this, and I think you should probably make the smart decision and be on my team.”
Our live-blogger John Benutty noted about Mrozak’s deliberations, “By the end of the song only Miley Cyrus had sat out the chance to add Hannah to her team. Adam was the first to speak, complimenting her tone and style. He also promised her a marquee spot on his team as his first female artist while Blake said she sounds like she’s already a backup singer in the industry. Jennifer tried to use both of those points against the guys in her attempt to win Hannah over, but she was unsuccessful because Hannah joined Team Adam.”
Mrozak is 18 years old and currently resides in Richfield, Wisconsin. Here is her official NBC bio: “Hannah is a licensed esthetician working at a spa that specializes in body treatments and facials. While she loves her work, Hannah’s real passion is music. Growing up, Hannah did a lot of talent shows, musical theater and formed a band when she was 13. Last year, her brother Mason, a victim of bullying, took his own life. Hannah found that music was vitally important in helping her cope with the loss. She decided to try out for The Voice since she and her brother always watched the show together and he wanted her to audition. She hopes to turn a chair in honor of him and to spread awareness about the impacts of bullying and teen suicide.”
