Keisha Renee is one of the most unique singers on Season 13 of The Voice. The 30-year-old from Los Angeles grew up singing gospel but after high school she discovered country music and fell in love. On Team Blake on The Voice, the former backup singer for Nicki Minaj has been singing country classics including “I Can’t Stop Loving You” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” For her Top 12 Live Show performance Keisha is blurring the genre line with the 1973 song “Midnight Train to Georgia” that put Gladys Knight and the Pips on the map.
It’s always a daring feat for an emerging singer on The Voice to take on such an iconic song. I mean, the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It’s on Rolling Stone‘s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (#432). But if anyone can pull it off on The Voice this season it’s Keisha. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
