Just call Lynnea Moorer the comeback kid.
Moorer, an Oakland native, has made it to the finals of the “Comeback Stage” on “The Voice” and will be singing for a chance to re-enter the competition during the Live Playoffs phase of NBC’s popular singing competition.
The “Comeback Stage” is an online companion series in which six deserving artists who didn’t make a team during the Blind Auditions compete for a chance to re-enter the competition in the live shows. Country music star Kelsea Ballerini served as the series’ “fifth coach.”
During the Comeback Stage, Moorer battled it out with the other five artists. Eventually, Ballerini picked her and Ayanna Joni to advance. Moorer impressed Ballerini with a tender performance of Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood.”
Now Moorer and Joni will go head to head on “The Voice” next week with the winner re-entering the competition as a Top 13 finalist. The winner will also pick which coach’s team she wants to join.
According to her NBC bio, Moorer, 18, was raised by her grandparents when her parents were incarcerated, but she credits her mother for introducing her to “all types of music.”
Moorer began performing in a praise band in high school and found success by posting her covers on YouTube. One of her videos went viral and she now has over 200,000 subscribers.
Her YouTube channel allows her to support herself as a pre-med student at Burman University in Alberta.
