Despite her soulful rendition of Bob Dylan's "To Make You Feel My Love," Filipino-American jazz crooner Amy Vachal was voted off the hit singing show The Voice.
While her former coach Pharell praised the quality of her voice and current mentor Adam Levine evaluated her style as "completely different and refreshingly raw," Vachal had the lowest votes in the semifinal round.
Her teammates, Shelby Brown and Braiden Sunshine, were also removed during the semifinal round, according to report on Bustle.
Despite her elimination, Vachal remained optimistic as evidenced by her tweets.
The singer from Brooklyn also praised fellow singers Jordan Smith, Emily Ann, Jeffery Austin, and Barrett Babber for making it to the final four.
Though eliminated, the young singer told My Central Jersey that her experience in The Voice was a positive "chaos" that developed her skills and gave her a platform for more than 50 million people to discover her.
"Nothing truly great comes easy. And I know that it's going to take even more work than we have put in through this show. I am so encouraged and they are reminding us that if we use what we have been given on the show, it's going to be hard for us not to succeed," she told writer Cheryl Makin.
Vachal plans on spending the holidays with her family before working on her first full-length album.
Prior to her elimination, the singer garnered attention with her version of N'Sync's "Bye Bye Bye," Drake's "Hotline Bling," and Taylor Swift's "Blank Space." —Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
