The music business isn’t anything new to Lex Land. But competing on a stage as big as “The Voice” certainly is.
The 24-year-old member of Team Blake works full-time as a singer/songwriter. She’s already released albums and some of her original songs have appeared on TV shows such as “Private Practice,” “One Tree Hill” and “Castle.” The native of Austin, Texas believes in using her time and talents to give back to others as she also works as a counselor/teacher at a rock camp for girls.
The sultry singer’s redition of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” got three of the judges to turn their chairs during the blind audition. Cee Lo Green turned first, followed a split-second later by Adam Levine. It took quite a while longer, but Blake Shelton finally turned his chair. Blake may have been the last to turn, but as Land said in a conference call, he was always Lex’s first choice because of his coaching on the show — and potentially beyond it.
“Well, I did actually want to be on Blake Shelton’s team. I thought that he was a really great coach last year and I felt that, regardless of the outcome of the show, if any coach was going to continue to support me and to mentor me with whatever happened that it would probably be him. So I was thrilled when he turned around. And in the heat of the moment, I wasn’t really sure who I was going to choose, but I ended up sticking with my initial feeling and I’m really glad that I did.”
