Ashley Levin performed “I Can’t Stand the Rain” by Ann Peebles on The Voice. As a member of Team Alicia, she is fighting for a spot on the Top 12.
Alicia Keys said that was her favorite song from Peebles. She loved how Ashley brought the song. Alicia said that Ashley’s voice was powerful and diverse.
What did you think of the performance? Let us know in the comments section.
Ashley has been singing and dancing since she was three. She moved to Augusta, Geogia, in middle school and attended a fine arts magnet school. In high school, she noticed her dad forgetting things, but assumed it was due to old age. In college, he was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s, so she moved in with him in Miami. She juggled school and music while helping her father. She recently made the difficult decision to pursue music in Nashville, leaving behind her siblings and father, whose health has worsened.

The three-time Emmy Award-winning “The Voice” returns with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show’s new season. Grammy Award-winning artist Gwen Stefani returns as a coach this season, joining megastars Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton and host Carson Daly.
The show’s innovative format features five stages of competition: the first begins with the blind auditions, followed by the battle rounds, the knockouts, the live playoffs and, finally, the live performance shows.
In the live playoff rounds, the Top 20 artists compete to secure a spot in the live shows. Artists perform live, and America votes to save their two favorite artists from each team. The coaches then save one remaining artist to complete their roster. The remaining contestants move on to the final phase of the competition – the live shows.
