Dia Malia from The Voice Season 22

Her audition: Dia Malai,, 26, of Queens, N.Y., performed “Real Love” by Mary J. Blige. Dia’s high-energy opening prompted a quick chair turn from John Legend. That was the chair turn Dia was looking for. None of the other coaches turned, which meant Dia automatically became Team Legend. Dia got high praise from the other coaches for her style and attitude. John loved the way she took command of the stage.

Here’s more about Dia Malai.
