Friday, October 5, 2018

When Hannah Kirby of North Texas received a phone call from NBC’s “The Voice” producers asking her to audition, she had no idea it would lead to her performance before a TV audience of 10 million. She also didn’t know that she would place in the Top Eight out of 50,000 contestants, guided by coach and superstar Blake Shelton.

Reba McEntire, referring to the combination of Hannah Kirby’s talent and humorous personality said during a coaching session on The Voice, “Hannah reminds me of my friend Dolly Parton.”

When Hannah comes on the stage, she brings a unique ability to fulfill the expectations of her audience. She loves them and they know it! She skillfully sings and talks them through laughter and tears with a voice that can comfort and energize. So many times her fans will say that just hearing her voice makes them feel good!

Blake Shelton was mesmerized each time he heard Hannah sing saying more than once, “Hannah, there is no one like you.”

Adam Levine told his team members after Hannah’s performance, “Watch Hannah, she knows how to entertain and perform; I want you to do what she does.”

Hannah is genuine, transparent and open with a voice that, while powerful, is so smooth it travels from your ear directly to your heart. Pairing this voice with her violin solos that complement all of the above, Hannah is a performer who has been asked to return for another booking to each stage she has ever performed on.

Hannah’s original sound lays somewhere between Tom Petty and father of R&B, Louis Jordan and her covers consist of Joe Cocker, Aretha Franklin, Fleetwood Mac, and other greats.
