Many people think of The Voice coaches changing the lives of the contestants, but sometimes it’s the other way around.

Ruby Leigh and Reba seemingly have a very tight relationship. Reba shared that Ruby has shown her what it must have felt like for her mom to be proud of her.

“Reba is the sweetest person ever. She is like pumpkin pie as a person. She is so awesome. She has also taught me so much. The knowledge she has is incredible,” Ruby shares.

“One thing for sure is she helps me get grounded into the emotion of a song. Not just singing it like you’re sad — you’re an actor when you’re onstage too,” Ruby continued. “Her crying during my playoff, she said she finally knew what it was like for her mom to be so proud of her. She treats me so well. I don’t think I could’ve picked another coach.”
