VIA| When I saw this 17-year-old’s rendition of a timeless gospel song, my hope for God’s presence in mainstream media was restored.
After an unforgettable 17th birthday, Emily Ann Roberts got the birthday gift of a lifetime when she made it to the final 12 on The Voice.
Although it was “unconventional” for her to pick a gospel song, Emily glorified God with the beautiful voice He blessed her with- proving she has what it takes to win this season.
Emily’s flawless rendition of the gospel classic “In The Garden” touched the hearts of everyone in the crowd, including the coaches!
“It’s always nice when you can enjoy a moment in its purity and not think about the show and not think about the competition,” Adam Levine said.
Emily’s timeless twang and the emotional lyrics to “In The Garden” brought this song to life in the most beautiful way. Her coach, Blake Shelton, was especially proud of Emily’s performance!
Watch Emily’s rendition of “In The Garden” now:
I got CHILLS at 1:14! She may be young, but Emily’s talent is undeniable. I pray Emily wins The Voice so she can shine the light of the Lord even more!
