Wester Chester resident Hillary Torchiana wowed country singer Blake Shelton after belting Adele’s “Easy on Me” during a blind audition of NBC’s The Voice. Shelton handpicked Torchiana to be on his team for the 22nd season, writes Geoff Rushton for StateCollege.com. 

“I did detect some twang in your voice,” said Shelton. “It was there and it was enough that I thought ‘You know what? I’m not exactly sure where this girl’s coming from but I want to be a part of it.’ So welcome to Team Blake.”

At the time of the recording, the Torchiana was soon to be married. She told another Voice judge, John Legend, that she and her husband’s were planning for their first dance to be to his song, “Never Break.”  

Legend said that he was happy he could be a “little part” of their wedding.  

Additionally, Shelton, the last of original Voice judges, has recently announced he will leave the show after 23 seasons.  

You can catch Torchiana on The Voice at 8pm Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 PM on NBC.
