Selkii has WOWED the American Voice judges again during the “battle” round!


The United States of America – The next chapter for the American Voice is currently underway, and on the most recent episode, South African Selkii WOWED the judges again.

The 31-year-old first took to the stage in the “blind auditions” phase singing Macy Gray’s hit ‘I Try’. She immediately caught the attention of Adam Levine, followed by Blake Shelton who she eventually picked.

Selkii is an indie folk musician originally from Durban but is now based in Florida. The talented artist is a Live-Looping-Singer-Guitarist, and her love for adventure and the ocean come through in her narrative and thoughtful lyrics. Her hypnotic voice has a reputation for stopping people cold in their tracks.

The talented singer took to the stage again, this time to perform a cover of Avril Lavigne’s “Head Above Water” against 16-year-old Cecily Hennigan during the “battle round”.

“The contestants who successfully pass the blind auditions proceed to the battle rounds, where the coaches put two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal face-off, the coach must choose only one to advance.”

Blake Shelton had a tough decision to make, but we think he made the right one!
