Watch Teen Wé McDonald Slay A 'Take Me To Church' Cover On 'The Voice'

You might have a religious experience.

Ever since she turned all four coaches' chairs during her blind audition, 17-year-old Voice star Wé McDonald has been delivering performance after amazing performance. Her powerful voice has taken her to the Top 12 on Team Alicia, and during Monday night's show, she blew us all away once again with a knockout take on Hozier's "Take Me to Church" that will have you singing "Amen!" right along with her.

Wé began her performance standing at the piano. But don't be fooled by the understated opening. Before long, she was rocking out to the song and interacting with the audience like a true star.


It's inspiring to see how much Wé's confidence has grown since she revealed in her audition that she had been bullied. Host Carson Daly expressed his amazement over her stage presence after her latest performance, asking her, "What happens to you when you perform?! You become another human being!"

Wé is proof that you really shouldn't judge a book by its cover. As you might remember, her high-pitched speaking voice shocked the coaches when they first heard it, as it's so different from the deep tones she has when singing. As her coach Alicia Keys told her this time around, "You are unforgettable."
