Aliyah Moulden Delivers Tearful Performance on ‘The Voice’ Top 10 [Watch]
The song choice truly hits home for the 15-year-old singer, as it relates to her personal journey dealing with her father's death, as she explained that the song is about "missing people." Her coach supported her decision to sing the track, saying that it shows "a lot of different sides" of her and what she can do as a vocalist.
Dressed in a flowing white gown, Moulden delivered a truly stunning vocal performance, showing off her sweet range while making the song sing with her pure vocals. The performance was made that much more poignant with a lovely cello accompaniment and Moulden breaking into tears as she sang the painful lyrics.
Shelton stood in solidarity of his mentee, with the crowd cheering loudly in support and Moulden's mother and grandmother wiping away tears in the audience. Gwen Stefani was amazed by the performance, calling her "smart" for picking it and saying she did a "beautiful job" and that she should be proud of herself. A beaming Shelton proclaimed he "could not be more proud" of his team member, commenting that she did what she knew she needed to do and was a true artist in pouring her heart into the song.
"I think we all cry with you," he said humbly.
Moulden finds out if America voted her into the Top 8 when the results are announced live Tuesday (May 9) at 8PM ET on NBC.
