DANIELLE BRADBERY NAMED CHAMPION OF ‘THE VOICE’
Popular 16-Year-Old Texan Takes the Crown as Fourth Season Wraps in Climactic Live Telecast
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — June 18, 2013 — NBC’s “The Voice” crowned Danielle Bradbery as the winner in tonight’s season finale, earning her the grand prize of a recording contract with Universal Music Group.
Bradbery, from Team Blake, beat out fellow finalists Michelle Chamuel and the Swon Brothers — all of whom performed on the telecast along with several other top musical acts.
Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher were the season-four coaches of the hit musical competition series.
Bradbery is a 16-year-old country artist from Texas who has never had a vocal lesson. With natural talent, her cousin encouraged her to start singing, and she soon had her first performance at a church festival. Bradbery cites Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride as her musical influences. Follow her on Twitter: @dbradbery.
“The Voice” ranked as the No. 1 reality show of the 2012-13 season, knocking “American Idol” out of the top spot for the first time in 10 years. The current cycle of “The Voice” ranked No. 1 in its timeslot in the 18-49 demo with every regular Monday and Tuesday telecast this cycle (excludes recaps).
“The Voice” returns for its fifth cycle in the fall.
“The Voice” is a presentation of Mark Burnett’s One Three Inc., Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.
