It was just five months ago, on Season 13 of The Voice, when coach Adam Levine referred to the members of rock band Heart as old. He mentioned the band at the Blind Audition of 16-year-old Moriah Formica who performed Heart’s 1976 hit “Crazy On You.” Moriah totally killed it (vocally and on guitar). Levine was giving Moriah a compliment when he said, “Heart’s getting old, man. There’s going to be an opening soon. You could be in that band.” The two lead members of Heart are the Wilson sisters, singer Ann and guitarist Nancy. They’re in their sixties.
Is it a coincidence that on Season 14 of The Voice, Adam Levine has two of his artists — Stephanie Skipper and Jackie Verna — sing a Heart song during the final Battle Round? They’ll sing the 1985 power ballad “These Dreams” which was Heart’s first number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Fun facts about “These Dreams” — Bernie Taupin (Elton John’s longtime collaborator) co-wrote the song and first offered it to Stevie Nicks, who turned it down. (Adam Levine had Stevie Nicks as his advisor on The Voice on Sesaon 7). P.S. Heart was inducted into the the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. The Voice airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
