The former backup singer for Wynonna Judd and Carrie Underwood (among others) teamed up with her coach for this soft and tender duet of Wynonna’s beloved classic.
Taking the stage during The Voice‘s two-part season finale, Blake Shelton and one of his two finalists sat down for this beautiful and dazzling tribute to one of country music’s best-known female vocalists.
During this season, Shelton was fortunate enough to have two of his contestants make it to the very end and each of his performances with them were unforgettable – but it was his duet with Kyla Jade for Wynonna’s “Only Love” that left the audience filled with emotions.
Kyla, who grew up singing in church, later worked with Carrie Underwood and then went on tour with Wynonna Judd as one of her first professional jobs as a backup singer. Later on, she worked with Jennifer Hudson as a backup singer and has been cheered on by both Judd and Hudson during this whole season of The Voice!
Throughout her other performances, Kyla has demonstrated her raw vocal power and the incredible strength of her lower register, but in this two-part rendition of “Only Love,” she takes it up a notch.
With tender, soft notes, Kyla blends and harmonizes with Shelton in an unbelievably good way. While the song might not fit directly in her wheelhouse – she definitely proves she can sing anything!
It’s clear that Kyla Jade has the voice of an angel and some dazzling, pure talent – but does she have what it takes to win this competition?
