Cilla Chan ’13 becomes first Singapore-born performer on ‘The Voice’

By

Singer Cilla Chan ’13, a Stanford Talisman alumna, is the first Singapore-born performer be part of the reality singing competition “The Voice.”

On Sept. 30, Chan, a Singaporean permanent resident and American citizen, interpreted “Come & Get It” by Selena Gomez on The Voice stage. Chan performed in a blind audition, which involved The Voice coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine sitting with their backs to the stage and only turning around when they heard a voice that impressed them.

Chan’s performance convinced country music superstar Shelton to turn around and ultimately welcome her into his team.

In an article for The Straits Times, Chan qualified her acceptance as the most thrilling moment of her life.

Her audition episode will air this Sunday.
