Contestant In Wheelchair Inspires ‘The Voice’ Coaches To Join Her On Stage
Last year, on the Arabic version of The Voice, singer Wiam Radwan delivered an emotional performance that turned all four coaches’ chairs. They even joined her on stage as she finished the song.
The 22-year-old from Morocco uses a wheelchair, as she suffers from myopathy. Check out her amazing audition in the video below, and read on to find out how the coaches reacted to her performance.
Wiam Radwan Auditions For ‘The Voice’
For her audition on The Voice: Ahla Sawt, Wiam performed “You Are the Reason” by Calum Scott. Coach Mohamed Hamaki was so moved when he turned around to see Wiam that he stepped forward onto the stage and sat on the floor beside her as she continued to perform.
Coach Samira Said also turned around, and she had tears in her eyes as she watched Wiam perform. Eventually, the last two coaches, Ahlam and Raghib Alama, also turned around.
As Wiam finished the song, the remaining three The Voice coaches also joined her on stage. Raghib Alama gave her a kiss on the head, and Wiam smiled as she kept singing. She ended up joining Mohamed’s team.
More Amazing Performances From People With Disabilities
Wiam reportedly said that she’s determined not to let her disability stop her from pursuing her dreams. “There is nothing better than you or your voice in this world,” The Voice coach Mohamed told her.
