All four chairs whipped around on NBC's "The Voice" as the coaches vied for the attention of Ashley DuBose '12 after her knockout performance of Rihanna's "Diamonds." Her blind audition aired on October 1.
Adam Levine was quick to get the first comments in about Dubose.
"Your voice cuts like a razor through this entire place," said Levine. "Those are the voices that make it really far on the show. So from a purely genuine standpoint, I can say your voice just overtook the room — it really did. That's why we turned around."
He apparently got the last word too, since DuBose "went with her gut" and chose Levine as her coach for the season.
DuBose was active in music during her time at St. Catherine University, taking voice lessons and participating in the Student Performance Hour. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from St. Kate's with a degree in mathematics and currently works full-time at Securian. But if Levine has his way, she's a singer now.
