Rachel Mac can’t drink legally, can’t vote yet. But she sure can wow the coaches on NBC’s The Voice.
Aged just 15, the Michigan native gave a blind audition that proved that youth is no barrier to talent.
Showing off an impressive repertoire with touches of country and soul, Mac performed Patty Griffin’s “Let Him Fly.”
She made Nick Jonas fly…for his buzzer.
Later, Mac confessed she was a longtime fan of Blake Shelton. “Sorry Nick. What’s not to love about Blake Shelton,” she enthused.
“You have literally made my week,” Shelton said, admitting he might have made a mistake by not picking her.
John Legend was impressed with the youngster’s strong vibrato, but suggested toning down the histrionics a touch. “If you do that, you’re going to be in great shape. Because you really have a lovely voice,” he remarked.
“You’re ahead of the game at 15,” Kelly Clarkson noted.
Will Nick mold the youngster into a pop artist? We’ll have to wait and see. Watch the performance below.
