The Voice: Ellen hopes for one of the last team spots
CABOOLTURE singer Ellen Reed hopes it will be a case of lucky last for her blind audition on The Voice.
She’ll be amongst the last remaining hopefuls to perform tonight for a handful of spots left in the final round of auditions.
“Knowing the teams were filling up definitely added pressure,” she told the Daily.
“That was definitely in the back of my mind that I had to be the best I could possibly be to impress the judges when they already had so much of their teams.”
The 27-year-old songstress has been making a living on the local music scene since November when she was made redundant from her job as an executive assistant.
“I took it as a sign that maybe the universe is telling me I’m not supposed to have a boring desk job, and that I’m supposed to let my creative flag fly,” she said.
“I’ve made a living off gigging since then. It’s been a big thing for me as I never had the confidence to go out and gig. It wasn’t until I was forced to that I gave it a go.”
Growing up in Elimbah, she hopes to follow in the footsteps of the town’s famous resident Keith Urban.
“I’m only around the corner from where Keith grew up,” she said.
“I could literally walk to his old house. I hope I can get as big as him one day.
“This (The Voice) is my all or nothing.”
The Voice airs tonight at 7.30pm on Channel 9/WIN.
