The thirteenth season of The Voice has concluded declaring, Brynn Cartelli, the winner. This amazingly talented 15 year-old has won $100,000 along with a Universal Music Group recording contract. She is the youngest to win the competition in the history of the show, and is thrilled to take this big step in her music career.
At the beginning of the competition, Cartelli’s coach, Kelly Clarkson said, “I can win with you,” and she was right. Clarkson was really confident in Brynn’s singing, and knew that she had the potential to become a professional singer as soon as she heard Brynn sing.
Even as a first time coach, Clarkson had a great initial instinct to press her button for Brynn. Blake Shelton was the only other coach who noticed her potential, as Adam Levine and Alicia Keys did not try to get her on their teams.
Clarkson has enjoyed having Cartelli on her team; through this experience they have become amazing friends, and hope to stay friends for a long time to come. Coach Clarkson went as far as to say that she is enthusiastic to help her along her music journey. Even if Brynn wants a break, Kelly said that she is stuck with her.
Throughout the competition, Cartelli sang Skyfall, Beneath Your Beautiful, and many others as she made her way to the top. Her biggest song was the new single she released the night of her big win, Walk My Way, which she also performed during the competition.
In the finale, her amazing vocal talents were displayed in her duet with Julia Michaels in their rendition of Jump and Issues. She also enjoyed singing Don’t Dream It Over with her lifelong idol and coach Kelly Clarkson.
Though many viewers have complained that The Voice has never produced a real popstar, Brynn could easily change the game. Since she is so young, she still has so much time to grow and find her sound as a singer. It has been a long journey for Brynn Cartelli, but this experience has produced amazing results. All of the coaches will admit that she has huge potential and is easily a popstar in the making.
