21-Year-Old's Ukulele Audition On The Voice Showcases Unique Style

Check out this great audition on The Voice where a 21-year-old singer showcases her unique style by playing the ukulele and performing Mike Posner’s ‘Please Don’t Go.’

“Let's run away, from these lies, back to yesterday, safe tonight
I feel the sun creepin' up like tick tock, I'll try to keep you in my head, but if not
We'll just keep running from tomorrow with our lips locked
Yeah, you've got me begging, begging, baby please don't go
If I wake up tomorrow, will you still be here, I don't know, if you feel the way I do
If you leave I'm going to find you, baby please don't go, go, go, go”

The singer in this video is Kaitlyn Velez, and she is from Long Island, New York. She has such a great voice filled with interesting and fun vibrato. It is the uniqueness of her voice that makes John Legend and Blake Shelton turn their chairs around right away. Ariana Grande even says to her that she regrets not turning her chair around for Kaitlyn.

Kaitlyn shares with the coaches that she has been playing the ukulele since she was 14 years old, and that was around the same time that she started writing her own songs. As the coaches compliment Kaitlyn on the uniqueness of her voice, she contemplates who to choose for her coach. And she ends up going with Team Blake!

“Two strategic and talented artists working together,” comments one person on YouTube after watching the video. “I’m looking forward to seeing what’s gonna come next.”

“She really has a great voice,” writes another person online. “Her pitch is really great, and her tone really cuts through. Her vibrato is super cool, and she started showing more range later.”

What a talented young woman! We can’t wait to see what she’ll do next on The Voice!
