Vanessa Ferguson Wins The Voice Battle But Autumn Turner Gets Stolen By Adam Levine
By Shawn Rice
Autumn Turner and Vanessa Ferguson performed “Killing Me Softly With His Song” by Fugees on The Voice. Alicia Keys noted their sisterhood. She liked watching Vanessa coming out. Alicia liked Autumn’s range. Alicia chose Vanessa as the winner and to remain on her team. Both Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani hit their steal buttons.
Adam thought she was pretty damn good. Gwen thought she could help her with style and personality in whatever song. Autumn then chose to join Adam’s team.
Gwen loved Vanessa’s outfit and she was so pretty and cool. Then Gwen said Autumn should win for her hair. Adam both had a distinct vibe and noted Vanessa’s experience. Adam said he would choose Autumn for his team. Blake Shelton said these two are the reason that they have this show. He said to Alicia that she can’t lose. In their practice, DJ Khaled said you want to give it a new spin on the song but since everyone knows it not to ruin it.
Autumn was raised by a single mother with help from her mother’s friend and godfather – her big inspiration – before he passed away four years ago. She grew up singing in church and choir, even joining a local girl group called Bloom. At age three, Autumn enrolled in ice-skating, where she competed until she was 13 and eventually turned to coaching at 16. Autumn currently works as an English teacher at a local private school.
Vanessa grew up singing with her family. Raised by her grandmother, she enrolled in piano lessons at age five and competed in her first competition in fifth grade. She moved in with her mother at age 13 and began taking songwriting seriously. After being diagnosed with endometriosis, she was hospitalized monthly and poured her heart into music. In 2011, she lived in Beijing, performing six nights a week at the LAN Club, and later toured the world on the Holland America cruise line for five months with the B.B. King’s Blues Club All-Star Band. For the past 11 years, Vanessa has made money strictly from gigging and touring.
