OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma woman is making her singing debut in the national spotlight.
Kristen Marie, 20, is a college student from Edmond and has found time between her class schedule, her barista job at Starbucks and an internship at a law firm to audition for NBC’s ‘The Voice.’
Marie told producers she wanted to audition for the show to carry on her mother’s dreams of being a successful Jazz singer.
Marie took the stage and performed “Mad World” by Tears for Fears/Gary Jules.
It soon became a battle between Team Christina and Team Blake for Marie.
Ultimately, she chose Team Christina.
She is isn’t the first Oklahoman to earn a spot on the show this season.
Kata Hay, from Tulsa, also earned her spot on Team Christina with her performance of f Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman.”
