With her vibrant personality onstage, Alyssa Witrado was never left unnoticed on The Voice stage. This 19-year-old singer is often referred to as Gwen Stefani’s long-lost daughter. Here’s everything to know about her.

Alyssa Witrado Braves Through the Blinds with a Gwen Stefani Song

The risk of singing a coach’s track during Blind Auditions is high, but Alyssa Witrado’s spirit is higher. In her first appearance in The Voice, Alyssa sang “Don’t Speak” by No Doubt, a rock band fronted by Gwen Stefani. Luckily, it only took 10 seconds before Camila Cabello and the singer “Don’t Speak” singer herself pressed their buttons for her.

“This has been my biggest dream come true it doesn’t even feel real. I didn’t think i’d get a chair turn let alone two,” she wrote on Instagram.

Alyssa believes that she could’ve done better at the time but nevertheless confident that she has more to offer. Truly, she stepped up her game during the Battle Rounds, where she went up against Ian Harrison to sing “Happier Than Ever” by Billie Eilish.

As she headed to the Knockouts, she was pitted against Daysia and Sasha Hurtado. She chose to sing “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen for that three-way face off.

“You are just incredible. There’s something about you. It’s one of those things you can’t really put words to,” Stefani said after her performance. “I just think you’re awesome.”

Sasha captivated John Legend and Blake Shelton, but Alyssa’s star power compelled Stefani to keep her. Consequently, she obtained a pass to the Live Playoffs and stay still on The Voice.

She is a Big “Mom Gwen” Fangirl

Alyssa has been fangirling over Stefani since the beginning of the show. Her level of adoration comes from her childhood, with her biological father introducing her to “Don’t Speak.”

Apparently, the said track has become Alyssa’s comfort song when her parents were going through divorce. As a kid, she practically lived through Stefani’s music, so it’s not surprising that her grooves onstage were effortlessly similar to the pop rock star. Understandably, fans regard Alyssa as Stefani’s long-lost daughter, to which the coach agrees.

“Do you see? She’s my daughter,” Stefani said during the Knockouts.

We will soon know if Alyssa Witrado will make it to The Voice finale. To witness her journey, be sure to tune in to the competition on NBC on Mondays and Tuesdays.
