Kyndal Inskeep, a Belmont alumna who majored in commercial voice, landed an early spot in the season premiere of NBC’s “The Voice.”
The singer also survived her first competitive match-up on this season on Oct. 21 when she sang a duet of “I Could Use a Love Song” by Maren Morris with James Violent. Celebrity Coach Gwen Stefani selected Inskeep as the winner of the battle.
For her audition, Inskeep performed “Never Been to Spain,” popularized by Three Dog Night in 1972, impressing Judges Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton. However, Stefani used her “block button” to make sure Shelton did not have the chance to be her coach.
Inskeep decided to work with Stefani, who succeeds Adam Levine in the lineup of “Voice” coaches.
“The Voice” airs at 8 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
