Zeya Rae of The Voice Season 25

Her audition: Zeya Rae performed “Bellyache” by Billie Eilish. But The Voice cut the performance down to about 15 seconds. She earned a chair turn from Reba and automatically became Team Reba because no one else turned. Dan said her voice sounded like Florence & The Machine meets Lana Del Rey. Reba says she loves Zeya’s voice and it’s unlike any others on her team.

Here’s more about Zeya:

* She’s a 23-year-old singer-songwriter who calls herself “your favorite spicy Gemini” on her Instagram page.

* She classifies herself as a pop / soul and R&B artist on her YouTube channel.

* She doesn’t appear to have released original music, at least not as Zeya Rae, though she has teased her intent to do so on social media.

* Zeya’s clearly aware of the impact a singing show can have for a performer. On her Instagram are clips of her performing karaoke with former American Idol standout Joshua Ledet and meeting with Zhavia of Fox’s The Four at a songwriting showcase. Former Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez shows up in another of her Instagram posts.

* And Zeya’s been heavily involved in music for quite a while. She was posting videos of herself covering popular songs back in 2014 and videos of herself performing in public a year later.

* Zeya says her musical inspiration is her mother. “She introduced me to music and my all time favorite artists. She pushed me to never give up and sing until I get it right. lol.”

* Don’t underestimate this young lady’s versatility. Her covers range from Adele to Taylor Swift to Morgan Wallen. And she called YEBBA one of her musical inspirations. Check out her vocal firepower and range on a cover of YEBBA’s “My Mind” below.

* On Instagram, Zeya says she gets asked all the time what her name means. The answer, she says, is success.
