Her audition: Morgan Myles, 35, of Nashville, performed “Hallelujah.” Camila Cabello and Gwen Stefani turned almost immediately, joined by John Legend and Blake Shelton soon after. If anything, Morgan’s performance got stronger and more soulful once all four coaches were facing her. She only had three coaches to chose from though because Camila blocked Gwen. Camila complimented her on her “gorgeous tone” and ability to sing with “her soul.” Blake applauded her for her believability.Morgan opted to join Team Camila.

Here’s more about Morgan:

* She’s a singer-songwriter from Williamsport, Pa., now based in Nashville.

* In a 2018 interview, she told CMT her interest in music started at a very young age. “Since I was three years old, I’d sit down at the piano and just start singing and playing. I think it’s just always been in my soul … Music is my therapy, my passion and my happiness. It’s never wavered.”

* In her website bio, she says she grew up listening to Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi and admiring the songwriting of Eva Cassidy and Carole King.

* And for her 11th birthday, she attended a Whitney Houston concert. Says Morgan: “I was influenced by any woman that had a big voice because I wanted to be just like them. You name it – any diva – I was trying to imitate.”

* She spent a year studying music at Berklee, then wound up in Nashville, attending Belmont University.

* In 2016, after releasing a six-song debut EP called “Miss Morgan Myles,” Rolling Stone named her one of “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.”

* That EP no longer appears to be available on streaming sites, but lots of other Morgan Myles’ music is. That includes “Acapella,” a 2018 single that’s her most popular to date with more than 500,000 streams on Spotify. It’s about eliminating negativity in your life, especially when it comes to relationships.

* More recently, Morgan released an impressive nine-song album called “Therapy” in 2020. Standout tracks include soulful ballads “Sanctuary” and “Therapy” and a fun kiss-off song called “Overserved.” Check out the music video for the magnificent “Sanctuary” below.

* She’s since released two more singles, “Contagious” and “Woman of My Word;” both dropped last year. The latter, her latest release, is a song she describes as one of the most vulnerable she’s ever written. “It helped me get through a dark time and I hope it resonates with anyone going through a similar experience. I hope this song allows anyone that is in a toxic isolated situation to stand up for themselves and move on to a better situation.”

* Morgan’s opened for a number of nationally known artists, including some of the better known Voice alumni, including Morgan Wallen and Texas Hill, the trio made up of Season 7 champ Craig Wayne Boyd, Season 10 runner-up Adam Wakefield and American Idol alum Casey James.
