With a set of vocal cords that would seemingly cowl any hit from any decade in music historical past, Chloe Kohanski turned the latest champion on The Voice after a season of viewer-pleasing performances, by no means as soon as discovering herself on the underside. (Take a look at what she had picked for her Last Chance song.)

Here is her reply:
That is a troublesome one. I believe crucial factor is it’s essential have a really, very clear thought of who you might be as an artist earlier than you let different folks let you know who you might be. This trade will form you and mildew you, and when you’re prepared to compromise your self and let your self change an excessive amount of, you then’re probably not gonna know you might be anymore. So anytime earlier than you check out for a present or competitors, or even when it isn’t show-related and also you’re on the come-up of a music profession, it’s essential have a really, very clear thought of who you might be. Or you’ll flip into one thing that you’re not, and that’s the fact.
It would sound like the only recommendation on this planet, to know who you might be as an artist, however that simplicity is certainly deceiving. In any case, what number of horror tales have been informed by individuals who moved to Los Angeles earlier than discovering their true identities or honing their personalities? It is an trade that is legendarily identified for chewing bold folks up and spitting them out, so even when somebody’s L.A. targets are time-limited to a season of a actuality present, Chloe Kohanski’s recommendation is to depart zero room for error with regards to cementing a persona and creative path.
Wanting again throughout all of the winners of The Voice, in addition to other competitive reality shows, there have positively been some winners that obtained by nearly solely on expertise alone, and not using a absolutely shaped sense of character coming to gentle. However these winners are usually those that solely get remembered every time individuals are trying again over previous winners for a selected purpose like this.
When Chloe Kohanski’s title comes up, although, folks will little question immediately keep in mind her means to knock female-driven ’70s and ’80s rock songs out the park. Particularly as her profession continues to develop in a route that hopefully embraces the methods she’s proven off.
At 23 years outdated, Chloe Kohanski is aware of simply who she is. And because the gifted singer put it, she’s not even positive how she would have made it on The Voice some other means.
I simply suppose [being on the show is] means an excessive amount of, emotionally and mentally. I could not think about going by way of this course of and probably not realizing who I’m, or simply even what my look is or what my sound is. As a result of if you do not know, who does? Who actually is aware of who you might be if you do not know who you might be?
