Blind Contestant Wows Keith Urban on Australian VOICE [Video]
Watch this! NOW! A brand new season of The Voice is underway in Australia and a young lady named Rachael Leahcar just gave an interesting double meaning to the show’s “blind auditions.” See, Rachael is legally blind and had to be guided to her mark center stage. But once she got there, the only thing she needed was a microphone in her hand. As Rachael layered her amazing voice around Edith Piaf’s “La Vie En Rose,” the crowd wept. The judges were swept up in the moment too. And, though he was the last judge to hit his button and turn his chair around, Keith Urban was won over by the occasion as well ! WATCH! This is beautiful!
It’s a rarity on The Voice (American or Australian version) for all four judges to turn their chairs around for the same contestant. But Rachael made them! And, when all the lobbying was done, our boy Keith (and Seal and Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden) lost out. Rachael chose to sing for pop diva Delta Goodrem’s team in the battle rounds. Good luck to you, Rachael!
