Emmaus College music teacher Kim Sheehy has taken the stage by storm after breaking through the blind auditions on The Voice.
Ms Sheehy has taken to The Voice stage before, in 2013, with her brother, where she was unsuccessful in making it through the auditions round.
During that audition she was slammed by the judges for her choice of Love Song by Sara Bareilles.
In a risky move, Ms Sheehy performed Sara Bareilles’ She Used To Be Mine for this week’s audition round.
Team Delta won the heart of Ms Sheehy after both Delta Goodrem and Ronan Keating turned their chairs around.
Ms Sheehy said she did not realise that anyone had turned around for her because of the position of the piano, but then she heard the crowd erupt.
“It was a bit of a no-brainer to go with Delta,” she said.
“Delta turned first and she just had a better pitch for me, on an artistry level we are just more similar.
“I’ve grown up listening to her.
“I am really looking forward to working with Delta.”
Ms Sheehy said it would be great to work on her piano skills with Delta.
“She just has so much knowledge about the industry, any information is going to be a bonus,” she said.
After coming back to audition a whim, Ms Sheehy said she definitely had the upper hand walking out onto the stage.
“So much can happen in three years,” she said.
“I felt like I was a brand new person than I was last time.”
Ms Sheehy said if she were to win the competition her teaching career would go on hold for a period.
“That would not put too much of a dint in my career progression,” she said.
“I’m dying to get that industry currency.
“I want to give a massive shout to Emmaus, my college and my colleagues, they are a big part of this.”
Ms Sheehy will take the stage in the battle rounds soon.
