Amy Vachal is the sweet-sounding 26-year-old from New Jersey who is competing on The Voice. For her blind audition she sang “Dream A Little Dream of Me” and had all the judges wanting more. She joined Team Pharrell and went head-to-head against engaged duo Jubal and Amanda. They sang the Bee Gees ballad “To Love Somebody.” While Jubal and Amanda overpowered Amy on stage, Pharrell sees a lot of potential in Amy and eventually named Amy winner of the battle. Now Amy is facing the first Knockout Round. History proves Amy has the stamina to continue to compete.
While a senior at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, Amy was involved in an accident on the soccer field. A serious concussion knocked her back physically and academically. During her recovery, she rediscovered her passion for music. She told MyCentralJersey.com, “I wanted to jump into music with everything I had.” The Voice airs Mondays at 8pm and Tuesdays at 9pm.
