DaNica Shirey is a strong contender for winning The Voice. The York County, Pennsylvania native, competing as part of Team Pharrell, has a voice that is rich with not just powerful tone, but emotion, too. When DaNica Shirey sings--people want to listen.

Coach Gwen Stefani called Pharrell Williams' contestant and her performance, "incredible," during Tuesday night's live show, when DaNica Shirey sang her way into this season's list of top 10 contestants. Adam Levine told her she could "literally sing any song ever written."

Pharrell Williams agreed.

“This was amazing. You did a great, great, great job," he told her.

Just prior to Tuesday night, DaNica Shirey made it clear that she wasn't ready to throw in the towel and go home.

"I definitely want to stay," she told WGAL.com. "I don't want this experience to end. I'm learning something new every single week. so I definitely don't want to go home. I know it is not the end for me, but I'm having so much fun doing it so I don't want to leave."

DaNica Shirey is joined in The Voice's top 10 by Luke Wade, her fellow Team Pharrell contestant. Team Adam has all three contestants remaining--Chris Jamison, Matt McAndrew, and Damien. Team Blake consists of Craig Wayne Boyd and Reagan James. Gwen Stefani's team is made up of Anita Antoinette, Taylor John Williams, and Ryan Sill.

Only three female contestants remain on The Voice. DaNica Shirey is likely the most powerful singer of the three, although Reagan James has a similar style and Anita Antoinette has an amazing stage presence. DaNica has some competition from the guys, but few of them can beat her strong God-given talent.

Do you think DaNica Shirey can win The Voice? She appears to have Kelly Clarkson's vote.
