Thanks to a series of powerful performances that all went viral, Desz is on her way to the Season 19 finale of “The Voice.” This Houston, Texas native and member of the Top 5 represents Team Kelly Clarkson in next week’s two-night finale, scheduled for Monday, December 14 (performance show) and Tuesday, December 15 (results show). If Desz ends up going all the way, she’d be Kelly’s fourth champion on her sixth season as a coach. What’s been your favorite Desz performance so far on “The Voice”? Vote in our poll below.
Desz started the show as a four-chair turn after her blind audition of “Un-Break My Heart,” ultimately choosing to join Team Kelly. She next performed “If You Don’t Know Me by Now” in the battles and “Can We Talk” in the knockouts, where she cemented herself as one of Kelly’s strongest contenders. In the live playoffs Desz took on “What’s Love Got to Do with It” and was America’s choice to advance to the semi-finals. As a member of the Top 9, she blew the house down with her “Don’t Let Go (Love)” cover.
Here’s her NBC bio: “Desz grew up as a shy child in a musical family, whose mother always encouraged her to sing. Her mother passed away unexpectedly when Desz was 11, and Desz courageously performed for the first time at the funeral to honor her. Soon after, Desz began singing in church and at school and never looked back. She spent the decade after college as a worship leader and gigging artist but was often overlooked for bigger opportunities due to the industry’s perception of beauty standards. Refusing to fail and determined to break image stereotypes, Desz moved to Los Angeles to chase her dream. She is now a member of Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir and spent the last year touring the world playing sold-out shows.”
The Final 5 artists on “The Voice” Season 19 are Desz of Team Kelly, John Holiday of Team John Legend, Carter Rubin of Team Gwen Stefani, and Jim Ranger and Ian Flanigan of Team Blake Shelton. Who will ultimately win?
