INSPIRING | Three The Voice 2018 Knockout performances that you'll enjoy and put on repeat

When it comes to listening to good renditions, there's no other TV show that would showcase the best of the best. Just to clarify though, I am not an avid fan of The Voice. However, as I was scanning through my Youtube dashboard, I saw one superbly awesome Knockout performance video which then tricked me to watch the other clips of The Voice this year.

Of all the videos I've marathon-ed today, here are the three The Voice Knockout rounds performances I really loved watching and putting on repeat. Enjoy!

1. Brynn Cartelli: "Here Comes Goodbye"

At only 14 years old, this young lady from Massachusetts has what it takes to win this year. As early as age four, she's already been singing and some of her vids are uploaded on her Youtube channel. At six, Brynn has had early singing exposure through school talent and variety shows. And surprise, this pop-soul singer-songwriter has performed in front of 15,000-strong crowd at Gilette Stadium.

2. Kyla Jade: "You Don't Own Me"

This 33-year-old woman from Tennessee is a vocal powerhouse. Her voice was developed as she grew up with a church choir. She once became a background vocalist for Jennifer Hudson and worked with Carrie Underwood. Her biggest break was when she took part in the Nashville Super Choir on “Bobby Jones Gospel,” BET's longest running gospel show.

3.  Christiana Danielle: "Elastic Heart"

Who wouldn't remember her for her audition piece cover of Hotline Bling? She grew up listening to gospel music exclusively, but eventually dabbled in R&B and blues. At 22 years old, she already has a degree in social work and aims to bring music to the underserved communities as a way of coping up in life.
