Emily Bass sings "Blank Space" for her The Voice Season 17 Blind Auditions performance tonight .
Blank Space by Taylor Swift – 16 – Magnolia, TX – Not only is Emily a singer, but she loves to draw. She gifts Carson with pencil portraits of the cast. In 4th grade she realized she wanted to perform. But she developed a complex disease, where her brain tells her body that an injury is worse than it is. When she tried to sing, it felt like needles in her throat. It took 7 months of physical therapy to heal. There are some pitch issues. She’s probably nervous! But Emily has a sweet, clean tone–a solid pop voice. Aw. No Turns.
Aside from singing, she’s also a talented sketch artist but has a rare disease that causes her to believe injuries are worse than they actually are. After months of physical therapy, she’s back to singing and ready to audition for the coaches. Performing “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift, Emily just doesn’t have the confidence to convince the coaches to turn their chair. They assure Emily she has potential and encourage her to return next season.
