Last night, Cassadee Pope was crowned “The Voice” winner. The young popstar, who decided to go slightly country, beat out Terry McDermott and Nicholas David for a coveted record deal. Did she deserve to win the finals and will she continue to work with Blake Shelton, post the Voice? Here’s the latest update on Cassadee Pope. Plus, The Voice rumors and predictions for next season.
Cassadee Pope, who hails from Florida is a down to earth indie rock chick. Born under the zodiac sign of Virgo, she has enjoyed moderate music success in the past, fronting the pop punk band, Hey Monday.
In 2011, Cassadee’s band decided to take a break from touring, which led her to audition for The Voice. Somehow, our loveable Gemini judge, Blake Shelton, convinced her to join his team and the rest is musical history.
When it comes to music, no doubt, Cassadee Pope has a distinct sound. She’s the girl who can make you shed a tear, with her emotional rendtion of each song she sings and its heartfelt lyrics. When it comes to recording a studio album, what are Cassadee’s plans for the future?
“If you were to take Taylor Swift, make it edgier with a just a little hint of country and make the lyrics a little more mature, that would be the direction I’d like to take,” Pope told Billboard.
In addition, she’s invited Blake Shelton to help her in the studio, with his magic country dust to sprinkle across the album. He said, “I would pay her to be on her record. I wish I could scientifically describe what it is about her, but I can’t explain it – she’s just one of those people destined to be a star.” Gotta love Blake, he’s definitely taken on a big brother/mentor role with our Virgo girl.
For Cassadee Pope, she’s not afraid to open her heart and share with her fans how she’s feeling. Outspoken about her estranged relationship with her father, she proudly told the Voice fans that she reconnected with her dad because of the show. Together, they are going to take baby steps to bridge the communication gap and be a family once again.
For Cassadee Pope’s mom, sister, and boyfriend…they are her biggest fans. They’ve all moved to California to support her singing career and her new solo album, which Astrochicks predicts will be a smash hit. Of course, this will only happen if she allows Blake Shelton to guide her and even possibly produce her. As a team, Cassadee and Blake have an undeniable chemistry that will be a hit making machine.
For Terry McDermott and Nicholas David, we so hope they get record deals as well. So talented, Astrochicks loved loved love this season of the Voice. We can’t wait to check out the new judges, Usher and Shakira. I’m sure it will be just as fun. Stay tuned.
