During The Voice Season 12 Blind Auditions, make sure to keep a look out for a young woman wearing a yellow dress. That’s Valerie Ponzio. The self-described “lovely Latina country singer” from El Paso, Texas does well on the show. In a sneak peek, Gwen Stefani rushes up on stage to give Valerie a kiss. Valerie refers to it on social media as the #Gwiss.
In El Paso, Val performs with a band called the Southern Line. Her website says about Southern Line and Val that “like a train running through a living room, Val and her band power through songs of loss, love and raising your glass to the hope of tomorrow.” See video below. You can find Val on social media by using the hashtag #ValPal. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
