19-year-old Kylee Dayne was originally planning to go to medical school. But she decided to take a different path in pursuit of her musical dreams.

That path led her to The Voice. She auditioned for the show’s 23rd season, and performed in front of coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, Chance the Rapper, and Niall Horan.

Dayne sang “Fallingwater” by indie pop artist Maggie Rogers. The song was released in 2018 as the third single off of her debut album.

“Fallingwater” claimed the 11th spot on the US Alternative Digital Songs Sales chart following its release.

The Voice coaches were hooked on Dayne’s cover of “Fallingwater” from the get-go. But while they were clearly enjoying her performance, no one turned their chair.

Dayne’s family was growing increasingly more concerned as her performance progressed. She remained determined, and went for a series of high notes that showcased her voice’s power.

Finally, at the last minute, Chance and Shelton turned their chairs at the same time. Horan soon followed, giving Dayne a well-deserved three-chair turn.

The Texas teen was in awe as Chance started complimenting her, saying, “I feel like you are the textbook definition of a star…

Horan piled on more compliments, telling Dayne, “There’s so much that can be done with a voice that big, and controlled.

Shelton was next. He specifically singled out the moments when Dayne went for the high notes. He said, “…that let me know, alright, this person can put together a killer performance.” Adding on, Shelton praised Dayne for having “an incredible voice.”

Then, Shelton went all-out to convince Dayne to join his team. Instead of doing his signature “pick me” finger point, Shelton pressed the button on his chair to drop a “Pick Blake” foam finger from the ceiling. He told Dayne he was only able to pull off that trick once during the auditions, and he did it for her.

It paid off, because Dayne ended up choosing Shelton as her coach! See how she got to that point by watching her stellar performance below.
