We McDonald ‘Scars To Your Beautiful’ “The Voice” Video: Watch Top 8 Performance!
We McDonald covered “Scars To Your Beautiful” during “The Voice” on Monday. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, 17-year-old McDonald has been bouncing around decades and genres throughout the NBC competition. Her song selections have ranged from Broadway favorites to recent Rihanna to a 1942 Billie Holiday classic. That last one was “God Bless The Child,” which propelled the teen to number 9 on the iTunes singles chart last week.
Now for her Top 8 performance, McDonald opted to go modern again with Alessia Cara’s inspirational track. In rehearsal with coach Alicia Keys, the aspiring star said the song “represents the kind of artist I want to be.” Keys noted, “We herself has expressed how she’s felt bullied for being different, so this is her message.”
And McDonald delivered that message “We-style,” as Keys put it, and it was once again an impressive performance from the contestant. Miley Cyrus joined Keys in a standing ovation, and then noted, “The way you were on the stage showed me what a We tour would be like.”
Keys pointed out that this is all “We’s vision,” and noted how “proud” she is of her artist. “When you finish performing, We, we can’t stop screaming. That’s how much we believe you,” she went on to say, telling viewers they were “witnessing the growth of a star.” Watch below!
