With little experience but a whole lot of natural-born talent, 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery tried out for The Voice hoping to make her dreams come true. Her cutesy, pitch-perfect rendition of Taylor Swift's "Mean" during the blind auditions landed her a spot on coach Blake Shelton's team. An early (and clearly unstoppable) frontrunner, Bradbery earned heaps of praise from the judges and was a dominating presence on the iTunes songs chart week after week.
She was unsurprisingly crowned the Season Four champ, earning a recording contract with Taylor Swift's Nashville-based label Big Machine Records. She starts working on her debut album next week.
