By Shawn Rice

Keisha Renee performed “Midnight Train To Georgia” by Gladys Knight for her mother on The Voice live playoffs. Jennifer Hudson said that Keisha cannot make a wrong note as her voice is like silk. Jennifer said that everyone felt it in the way that Keisha delivered her performance.

What did you think of the performance on The Voice? Let us know in the comments section.

Keisha was born in Los Angeles and grew up singing at church. Gospel music is definitely her foundation, but after high school she moved to Houston where she discovered country music. Though she fell in love with country, it took her a long time to pursue it because she was often told she would be better suited for pop or R&B. Keisha spent seven years working as a professional background singer, and for the last five years her boss has been Nicki Minaj.

Touring with Nicki was absolutely amazing, but after having her daughter Amari two years ago, Keisha underwent a big lifestyle change. Throughout her life she has always struggled with her weight and during her pregnancy she weighed 356 pounds and was diagnosed with diabetes. It was a huge wake-up call for her and Keisha feels having her daughter helped save her life. She has since lost the weight and feels like now is the time to finally go after her true dream of becoming a country artist.
