Monday night on NBC, 17-year-old Livia Faith sang The Mamas and The Papas‘ “Dream a Little Dream of Me” during the blind auditions of “The Voice” Season 14. The Stanton, Kentucky resident is still in high school, but she has an affinity for the classics, which she changes up with her unique tone. Three coaches — Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton — turned their chairs around for Livia, and she ultimately chose to be on Team Alicia. Can Livia make it all the way to the Season 14 live shows? Watch “The Voice” blind audition performance video above.
When Livia revealed that she could also play the ukulele, Alicia told her, “I think that’s a really cool thing to integrate in your performances. I think that’d be so unique and beautiful. And I’m just like you. I love soul music, I love oldies, I love classics. And I love to take them and then twist them on their head. So I think together, our knowledge of music and inspiration — and your mom — we’ll up with a few new songs and we will absolutely take over ‘The Voice.'”
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger John Benutty wrote, “Her audition, ‘Dream a Little Dream of Me,’ was her chance to get a turn from Blake and in that goal she succeeded! Both Kelly and Alicia also hit their buttons, setting Livia up for a tough decision. After a promise to help Livia switch things up and mix different genres together, Livia chose Alicia!”
