'The Voice' season 17: Who is Brennan Lassiter, the country singer who won fans' hearts with her debut performance?
Fans have already taken a liking to her, and claim that she has what it takes to make it all the way and that Kelly Clarkson might have a winner on her team.
With only one week of 'The Voice' season 17 Blind Auditions over, the series already has a slew of tough competitors who have a high chance of winning this season. One among those contestants is 20-year-old Brennan Lassiter from Team Kelly, who has landed herself a spot in the frontrunner's list.
Fans also speculate that Brennan has what it takes to go all the way through. So who is Brennan Lassiter?
On Monday night when the series premiered, Brennan took to the stage and performed her rendition of Johnny Cash's 'You Are My Sunshine'. The 20-year-old dedicated it to her grandparents who raised her since she was a little kid. Within a few seconds of Brennan singing, Blake Shelton turned his chair for her, followed by Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani and John Legend.
Her raspy country voice made it hard for someone not to be impressed, especially the coaches who were fighting to have her on their team. After her performance, each coach gave their pitch as to why she should choose them as her coach, and as much as country singer Blake tried to woo her into his team, Brennan chose Kelly as her coach. This is not the first time Kelly is working with a country singer. In season 15, Kelly won The Voice with Chevel Shepherd, a country singer who is currently working on her record.
The 20-year-old was born and raised in Dacusville, South Carolina. Brennan was raised by her grandparents. She grew up in a church where her grandfather was the pastor. She fell in love with singing at the age of six. Brennan used to stand at the back of her dad's truck and put on a performance for his hunting friends. Singing in church from the age of 12, and doing worship, this was Brennan's first performance out of the church. The frontrunner is a receptionist at a chiropractic office and she still leads the worship in her church.
With just one performance of Brennan, fans have already taken a liking to her, and claim that she has what it takes to make it all the way and that Kelly might have a winner on her team.
Taking to Twitter, a fan said, "Watching #TheVoice and Team Kelly might have already got the winner with Brennan." Adding to that another fan said, "#TeamKelly has her third win secured with Brennan! Calling it now!! #TheVoice #VoicePremiere."
"Way to go @kellyclarkson Brennan will go far this season #girlpower #thevoice," wrote a fan. While another added, "Okay you are winning this competition! I called it last season and several rand I’m calling it now! I got chills and tears all in the same song! Amazing job wow! I love the song choice."
