It takes some big talent to cover one of Queen Bey’s songs! Maria Celin Strisland, a 22-year-old singer from Mandal, Norway, competed on “The Voice Norway” in 2017, and the video of her performance is still racking up views on YouTube years later. So far, more than 6.3 million people have witnessed her stunning rendition of “Runnin’ (Lose It All),” an original song by record producer Naughty Boy that features Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin.
Maria has an unusual voice that perfectly suits the upbeat tune. Some have compared her sound to Bebe Rexha, Elle King, or even Lorde, but in our opinion, Maria’s voice is all her own!
Although she didn’t end up winning “The Voice Norway” that season, we have no doubt we’ll be hearing more from Maria. See her incredible audition in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story.
