Michigan’s Rachel Mac Heads to ‘The Voice’ Finals
Michigan is in the house for this years finale of The Voice.
Rachel Mac, a high school student from Romeo, Michigan, secured her spot in the finals on Tuesday night. Mac, who is 16 and a sophomore at Romeo High School, racked up high points with her rendition of "Human" by Christina Perri.
The young singer, who is a member of Nick Jonas' on the show, has continued to wow the judges all season long and is the only member of Team Jonas in the final 5. Mac has been open about her battles with depression and has used her time on The Voice to open up about it.
“I’ve gone through depression in my life where I felt like it would be better if I wasn’t here,” Mac said in her interview on the show before her performance according to Mlive. “I just want everyone to know that if you are going through that, you’re not the only one. You will get through it because I got through it. We’re all human.”
Mac, who describes her style as indie folk, says she was inspired to sing by her two older sisters. She is the youngest competitor left in the popular singing competition and was one of just three from Michigan this season to take the stage in search of stardom.
Mac made her Voice debut during the Blind Audition back on March 15th when she performed Patty Griffin’s “Let Him Fly”. She was only 15-years old at the time and Nick Jonas was the only coach who turned his chair for her. She will now get to sing her heart out for a record deal.
Mac will join fellow finalist; Team Legend's singer Victor Solomon, Team Clarkson's Kenzi Wheeler, Team Shelton's Cam Anthony along with the Wild Card pick from Shelton's Team Jordan Matthew Young for the finale. The two night event will kick off at 8 p.m. Monday on NBC.
