‘The Voice’ Season 14: How Kelly Clarkson Will Help Brynn Cartelli Even After the Show
Season 14 of The Voice was pretty exciting mostly because of the addition of Kelly Clarkson. She is an amazing vocalist who has been through a reality show competition before, so she brought a lot as a coach. It’s no surprise that she won on her first try.
But of course, that win has a lot to do with Brynn Cartelli’s raw talent. The 15-year-old is now the youngest person to win the show. But will she be able to make it into the music industry later?
Here are seven things to know about her plans after her win, including how Kelly Clarkson plans to help her (page 5).
1. Cartelli will be returning to school after her win
- The singer isn’t stopping her education just because she won.
The reality star has a lot more options, given she won The Voice, but she still has to finish school. According to Parade, she will be going back to public school.
The singer said:
There is a lot I still have to figure out because it’s been so early since it all happened. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I want to do something with music and I want to continue school at the same time. Music is at the forefront right now of everything. It’s a big deal for me and it’s really important to me. So I just hope it will all work out and I can figure it out somehow.
