EMSB Student on La Voix Junior
Chelsea Goldwater, a Secondary I student at Royal West Academy , made it past the blind audition stage on TVA’s hit show La Voix Junior, singing Part of Your World before an estimated TV audience of close to three million viewers. After passing through the first two audition processes, competing against several thousand other young singers, she advanced to the prestigious blind audition stage. This is when in order to proceed to the dual rounds, at least one of the coaches (judges) must turn their chair around. Singing the song Part of Your World, she succeeded in having Marie-Mai and Alex Nevsky swing her way before a television audience of close to three million viewers.
“I was very nervous,” Chelsea said. “I really wanted them to turn around. When they did I felt very relieved. This all still so surreal to me. I mean I watch the Voice all the time and La Voix as well. To just get past the blind auditions is so exciting.”
Keira Cape, Chelsea’s mom, noted that her daughter auditioned last year but came down with strep throat during the process and could not continue. “When the time came to audition last summer I asked her if she was interested,” she said. “We are all so proud of her.”
Chelsea’s sister Kailey, 14, dad Ira and mom were behind the stage for the blind audition and shown frequently on TV. The clip is now getting a lot of hits on YouTube. Chelsea will next appear in the dual rounds on Sunday, November 5 at 7 pm on TVA.
