Marybeth Byrd’s experience on The Voice is examined before her American Idol audition.
Marybeth Byrd, the possible American Idol competitor, has already been on television and participated in another singing reality show. She was one of the candidates on season 17 of NBC’s The Voice in 2019 when she made it to the Top 8 on John Legend’s team. At her blind audition, she sang Montgomery’s Angel and turned all four chairs, but ultimately decided to join Legend’s team.
The Top 13 were asked to donate a song to someone who had influenced them throughout the show, and the next American Idol season 21 vocalist dedicated a song to her late grandfather, who died the day before her auditions. blindly. She revealed on the show that the song she chose, Go Rest High on that Mountain, was one that she and her grandfather performed together regularly. Although she was dealing with the loss of it, her coach urged her to include it in her performance, and so she did.
“I can’t think of a better way to respect his memory than to honor his wishes from the day I was born. On Monday, I know he will have the most important seat in the chamber.”
She went on to say:
“I wouldn’t be on The Voice if he hadn’t shown me his passion for music. “It’s hard to lose someone who was such a bright light.”

She went on to say that sometimes she can’t listen to the same music because it is too disturbing. John Legend said that by revealing her sadness, she allowed the nation to see the aspects of her that made her who she is, and that her grandfather inspired her to become a singer and artist.
