Contestants On The Voice Perform Avril Lavigne's 'Head Above Water'

Above Water,’ on The Voice. Avril stepped away from the music scene for five years while she fought a difficult battle with Lyme Disease. Once her health improved, Avril penned this song about leaning on her faith in tough times.


“God, keep my head above water
Don't let me drown, it gets harder
I'll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees”

Today, Selkii and Cecily Hennigan are stepping onto The Voice stage for a beautiful duet of this inspirational song.

These two have already won a spot on Team Blake but, now, they’ve reached the battle rounds where contestants face off against one another while singing a duet.

Afterwards, the coaches will weigh in with their comments and decide who will move on to the next round of competition. Both of these powerhouse vocalists bring something special to the table and every single note of ‘Head Above Water’ is performed flawlessly.

“God, keep my head above water
I lose my breath at the bottom
Come rescue me, I'll be waiting
I'm too young to fall asleep”

This is such a personal song and a true anthem for those fighting any kind of battle. Sometimes, we need a reminder that only God can step in and save us. These powerful lyrics truly give us a renewed sense of hope and strength.

I’m so glad that this beautiful song was performed on national television for the whole world to hear. Coach Blake certainly has a tough decision to make after this battle round duet.
