"Why "Prodigy" Laura Williams' 4-Chair Audition is "One of the Best" the Coaches Heard"

Twenty-year-old The Voice contestant Laura Williams hails from Cooperstown, Pennsylvania, where she experienced severe bullying growing up. When the stability of social relationships was uncertain, Williams turned to music as a creative outlet; a way to turn those feelings from pain into something beautiful.

Laura Williams Wins over the Coaches With a Stunning Blind Audition
How to Watch
Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

Williams hits The Voice stage with a staggering performance of “Fingers Crossed,” by Lauren Spencer Smith. From the opening notes, Williams’ rich, deep voice captures the attention of Niall Horan and Gwen Stefani. Once again, the pair race to be the first to hit the buzzer, earning Williams a 2-Chair Turn before anyone has a chance to catch their breath.

While Horan and Stefani were the first to turn, they weren’t the last. Williams even won over John Legend and Reba McEntire, both of whom have been a little more discerning so far this season, earning herself a coveted 4-Chair Turn.

“You were one of the best I’ve heard, honestly. The control you have, the character in your voice, I would have even thought maybe you wrote that song. That’s how connected you were,” Stefani says of the performance. “And for a 20-year-old to be on this big TV stage in front of us, you were so composed and in control of your performance. It was really, like, major.”

Not missing even a moment, Horan jumps in with his own assessment. “Laura, that was so good. I love your whole vibe; I love your outfit. This is a very, very, very hard song to sing because it’s so snappy. You need quick breaths. Most people would get halfway through that chorus and pass out,” Horan says.

McEntire, perhaps seeing the writing on the wall, keeps her comments brief but calls Williams’ voice a God-given gift. Legend, likewise, takes a more passive approach saying, “I think part of the task of a good coach for you is to not overcoach you and mess that up. Then Legend asks what sort of artists Williams likes and who inspires her. She lists several artists including Horan’s own group One Direction.

Still, everyone broke out their customized team sweaters in an attempt to win Williams over. In the end, she made perhaps the only decision she could have, and joined team Niall.

“Sky is the limit for Laura,” Horan says. “Her voice has got so much character in it. I’m so happy to get that win, I think we’re off to a good start.”

"'The Voice': Niall Horan wins over 4-chair singer Laura Williams with fake marriage proposal"

The power of persuasion can go a long way on "The Voice," but Niall Horan's boy bander charm is untouchable.

The One Direction alum gunned for singer Laura Williams alongside coaches John Legend, Gwen Stefani and Reba McEntire during the fourth round of blind auditions Tuesday night. The 20-year-old earned a four-chair turn with her robust vocals and emotional cover of "Fingers Crossed" by Lauren Spencer-Smith.

"This is a very, very hard song to sing," Horan said. "Most people would get halfway through that chorus and pass out. No one can command a stage and project that well with breath control like you."

While speaking about her musical influences onstage, Williams revealed to Horan she is a longtime One Direction fan. "(I) saw you in 2015. Did you see me in the nosebleeds?" Williams jokingly asked Horan.

When it came time for Williams to select her coach, Horan asked if he could "be the one to ask you the big question," which Legend poked fun at as sounding like a marriage proposal. In response, Horan pulled off the ring he was wearing in a faux ceremonial gesture.
Wedding bells may not be ringing anytime soon, but Williams said "I do" to joining Team Niall.

"I loved Laura's performance, and I'm very upset that she's a Directioner," Legend said. "Niall's been a thorn in my side all season, and we have no chance against him with these girls." - USA Today - Edward Segarra

The singer said in the Blind Audition round, "I'm from Quakertown Pennsylvania." She then went on to claim that she turned 20 two days before coming for the audition round.

The singer said, "Best birthday present I've ever got." As Niall Horan tried to persuade the singer to come in his team, he claimed, "May I be the one that ask you the big question?"

Laura, being overwhelmed with Niall as if he was going to propose her said, "You can, You could do both, I mean."

Niall then takes out his ring from his finger and claims, "Here you go." Well, this was just a gesture and Niall did not actually put the ring on Laura's finger.

Laura's journey on 'The Voice' was her 1st ever gig. She revealed that she had worked as a babysitter and graduated high school. She said, "I made the decision in April to defer from college for a year so I could take my shot at music."

The coach added, "I'm gonna call a god-given gift." She added, referring to the god, "He did you a big ol' favor when he gave that to you."

It was a no-brainer for Laura to go with Niall. She already made it clear that she was a big One Direction fan.

"LAURA WILLIAMS: The Voice contestant"

Laura didn't have the easiest childhood, but music helped her navigate the most difficult times. In second grade, Laura began to experience bullying. After years of this, Laura's parents were so concerned they pulled her from school and opted for homeschooling. After a year of homeschool and a fresh perspective, Laura was ready to enter public middle school. During that time, she thrived and began singing in theater. Unfortunately, high school presented new challenges as she moved to a new area. Laura struggled with self-image issues, which led to the development of an eating disorder. After several years and with the support of her family, Laura leaned into her faith for healing and later on sought out therapy. Thankfully, she's healthy and happy now, and those experiences have fueled her songwriting. She began to compose songs as early as 14 and now shares her music as well as Christian-based content on social media. - USA Network


Still working on that hot first release.



Hi, my name is Laura Williams! I am a 20 year old Christian artist from Quakertown, PA. My first gig was on NBC's The Voice season 24 (the current season), where I received a four chair turn and am now on Team Niall. 

I have been singing my entire life, just never in professional settings. I participated in theater in my middle school years, but did not perform my own shows or gigs. School took first priority growing up, but when I was scouted by a management my senior year of high school, I knew without a doubt the opportunity to pursue music full time was the right option for me. As I rediscovered Jesus in my later teen years, I realized all I wanted to do was point people towards Him in whatever I ended up doing with my life. So, when my management asked me if I would consider pursuing Christian music, I knew it was a sign from God that this path was His plan for me, and I haven't considered another genre since.

As this season of The Voice airs on national television, I have received thousands of new followers interested in my musical journey. I have recently traveled to Nashville to write new music and will continue to do so. My career is just beginning, and I am thrilled to start performing consistently!
