Michelle Brooks-Thompson Nails ‘Proud Mary’ on ‘The Voice’

Week three of ‘The Voice‘ blind auditions started out on a hellvua high note for Michelle Brooks-Thompson, a wife and mother of two whose day job is spent working at a bank.

Often told by her boss that she could sing, and convincing potential customers to open an account by singing, Brooks-Thompson decided to try her hand at auditioning on ‘The Voice.’ But she was hesitant after the experience her husband had with the NFL.

Brooks-Thompson’s husband made it on to the St. Louis Rams, but before he even had the chance to play his first game, the couple received a letter that he had been released. ”I feel a lot like my husband did because it’s as if Im trying out for a team,” she said in an interview. “It’s very scary because I saw what happened to him with the NFL. It’d be disappointing if both of our dreams were shot down.”

Luckily for her, though, she blew the judges out of the water with her rendition of Tina Turner’s ‘Proud Mary.’ For a song that takes serious control of a singer’s voice and requires strong (and loud) vocal abilities, Brooks-Thompson nailed her auditions: Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green turned their chairs around before the tempo grew, and Christina Aguilera turned at the last second after hearing a note she liked.

Levine asked Blake Shelton, the sole judge to not press his button, “What’s wrong with you?!” In typical ‘Voice’ fashion, the three eligible coaches fought tooth and nail for the talent. But, Brooks-Thompson had to go with her gut and chose Adam!

A surprising choice, but will ultimately be nurtured perfectly.
