Sisaundra Lewis Eliminated From The VoiceBy: Lindsay McCane - May 8, 2014
Last night, the top five contestants were revealed on The Voice.
Kat Perkins, Christina Grimmie, Kristen Merlin, Jake Worthington and Josh Kaufman were revealed to be safe, while Sisaundra Lewis, Audra Mclaughlin and Delvin Choice were sent home.
After the elimination, reporters got a chance to talk to Sisaundra about her journey on The Voice. She said that working with her coach Blake Shelton was a huge honor, and she learned so much from him.
“Working with a huge talent like Blake, and him taking my gift and defining it more: just like do this, don’t do this, work on this,” she said. “He has just been pouring all this knowledge into me and I just feel so honored to be able to receive it. He’s just unbelievable. And the way he tells you how to do it, you can’t help but just go yes, sir.”
Sisaundra originally did not want to try out for The Voice, but her 15-year-old daughter urged her to take on the challenge. She says gaining the nerve to come compete and do so well is the most valuable thing she gained from her experience.
“The most valuable thing I am going to take away from this is I actually had the courage to accept my 15-year-old daughter’s challenge to come here and compete. And I have never competed in my life,” she continued. “So it’s a statement of saying you can do anything you ever want to do in your life. And for “The Voice” to embrace me and treat me just as well as they have treated every one else regardless of age and anything else, I’m taking away from this the most positive experience that I have probably had in my life to this point.”
While Sisaundra says she doesn’t know what the future holds, she hopes to one day record an album. “I don’t know exactly what is next but I know that god has amazing things in store for me and I am ready to receive that.”
