A Sussex County native showcased her powerful vocals during a blind audition on NBC’s ‘The Voice.’
Danielle Escobar, known musically as Yellsmiles, took to the stage during Tuesday night’s episode and belted out a cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky.”
“I’m Yellsmiles, and I’m from Sussex County, New Jersey,” the pop singer told judge John Legend after her performance.
“What a name — that’s so cool,” Legend responded.
None of the judges hit the button to turn their chair around during the blind audition that would’ve allowed the singer to move forward to the next round — but that didn’t stop them from sharing words of encouragement.
“I have heard a lot of ‘noes,’ and with each one of those ‘noes’ I became more determined,” Nick Jonas told the singer.
“I think you’re going to turn this ‘no’ into a ‘yes’ down the road, and I’m excited to see that journey for you,” Jonas said.
