Blind Audition

She performed the amazing soulful hit of the Beatle’s song “We Can Work It Out”. Her rendition over the song was somewhere similar to Chaka Khan’s 1981 cover of the same song. As soon as she started singing after coming to the stage of the show “The Voice” the coaches started turning their chairs for the legendry performance. Shelton used his block on Legend that was further meant to state that if she wanted to join the “All of You” singer’s team then she would be welcomed to do so. Clarkson hit the button and Grande followed her shortly before Moten’s performance ended. Soon after the performance ended, Clarkson said that she even forgot to press the button as she was lost in her performance. She later laughed at herself.

After singing the song, Moten stated that she was connected with the industry for over 35 years under her belt. She had recorded great hits and singles in the early stage of the 1990s. Her biggest hit was “Come In Out of the Rain” before she ended up and joined some of the great legends named John Oates and Julio Iglesias. To this, Grande replied that it was the privilege of all the four coaches to get her as the singer who was spectacular as she wanted her to be in the foreground. And it was the time to seek her on the stage. They all appraised her voice and for having so wonderful skills with the “mastery” over voices and singing beyond what is just called “talent”.
