43-Year-Old Mom Gets Final Four-Chair Turn of the Season on “The Voice”

Val T. Webb

The Voice released a clip ahead of tonight’s final blind audition episode, and it shows one of the most powerful and “flawless” performances of the season. 

The video shows Val T Webb taking the stage to sing Deborah Cox’s Nobody’s Supposed to Be Her. She was only a few lines in when John Legend hit his red button. Chance the rapper hit his next. Then Dan + Shay and Reba McEntire turned around shortly after. 

Once all the judges saw their star, they stood and cheered for the remainder of her performance. 

“I’m so happy for you because I see the joy in your face, and little relief, too, I think,” John said when she was finished. “It’s very difficult doing this audition but you handled it with such poise and grace. I don’t know if you noticed, but I was the first one who turned for you. Your tone is so elegant. Do you sing in church? You sound like you do.”

The 43-year-old mom shared that she’s a seasoned singer. She works as a worship director in her hometown of New Braunfels, TX, and she’s sung backup vocals for “professional artists.”

John tried to persuade Val T Webb to join his team by explaining that he “grew up singing gospel and soul music.” He also noted that he loves working with artists like her. 

“You’re so gifted, and it would be a joy to work with you,” he said. 

Shay joined the battle by saying that he, too, grew up singing gospel. He believed their shared love of worship would be a great foundation for their partnership on The Voice

“You have such a light,” he added. “I don’t think it’s the lights behind you. I think it’s just you lighting up this room. You are a star. You’re a backup singer no more.”

Chance told Val that he is also heavily involved in church choirs. In fact, he runs a vacation bible school in Chicago. 

“I would honestly love an opportunity to work with you,” he continued. “Your breath control is ridiculous, and I thought you have such great control of your higher register. You made it your own song, and I feel that that’s what this show is all about is people showing their true personalities through their music. I really, really think we can make some special moments together.”

Finally, Reba gave her pitch. She admitted that she originally thought she would be a little out of her wheelhouse as Val’s coach because she’s a country star. But Reba doesn’t think Val needs any actual coaching, so she went for it.

“I was like, ‘Well, I’m the country girl singer here, I don’t know what I could do to contribute.’ But then I got to thinking, if I’m going to give any notes, I really need to pay attention to see if there’s anything I can critique on. There wasn’t, and that’s when I hit my button because I’ve been in the business for a long, long time and you just look like a beautiful woman who loves to sing for the Lord as I do, and we’d have a great time together. I’d love to be your coach.”

We’ll see who Val T Webb chooses when The Voice airs tonight on NBC at 9 PM ET.
