There has been no shortage of talented Christian artists in previous seasons of NBC’s The Voice, and this season is no different.
Contestant Brooke Simpson performed an absolutely beautiful rendition of “Amazing Grace” on Monday night, bringing the audience to their feet. Though, the live audience wasn’t the only group blown away by her vocals. Simpon’s performance quickly climbed to number 2 on iTunes, according to Charisma News.
Prior to her taking the stage, Simpson said, “I just want to get up there and in the most raw way possible, show my heart.”
Her passionate performance was definitely raw, and her heart was unmistakably present as she belted out incredible notes with the Campus Choir at Lee University singing alongside her.
Simpon’s parents are both evangelists, so she grew up traveling from church to church on the weekends. “Songs like ‘Amazing Grace’ let me know that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” she said.
