Reading Time: 2 minutes
During Monday night’s 10th anniversary special for The Voice, coach Nick Jonas shared that he had recently worked with Season 18 runner-up Toneisha Harris. The singer wasn’t on Jonas’ team, but he invited her to sing backing vocals for him.
Harris recently appeared with Jonas during his performances on Saturday Night Live. The coach hosted the show in February, and he also performed two songs as a musical guest. Harris joined him on stage, along with two other singers.
Toneisha Harris Sings Backing Vocals for Nick Jonas
Jonas performed his songs “Spaceman” and “This Is Heaven” during his SNL gig. Before the performances, Harris posted a photo from the set of the sketch comedy show, noting that it had been exactly a year since her Blind Audition aired on The Voice.
Harris wrote that she was “loving this journey.” The singer recently caught a repeat airing of Jonas’ SNL episode. She was excited to see her performance with the star, and shared photos of her TV.
Harris competed on The Voice on Blake Shelton’s team. She finished the competition in second place, with fellow Team Blake artist Todd Tilghman taking home the trophy. Harris still made a big impression, with the other coaches expressing a desire to work with her.
Harris Received Offers from Other Coaches
Jonas wasn’t the only coach who wanted to share the stage with Harris. After she performed “Because You Love Me” in the Live Playoffs of Season 18, both Shelton and Kelly Clarkson invited her to perform with them.
“I wish you would honor me with coming to my Vegas show in 2021, and just… taking my stage over, singing that song,” Clarkson said. “I want it to go live. I want people to hear just how big that song [is.] ‘Cause I feel like you couldn’t even hear how big you epically got. It was incredible. You are an incredibly gifted vocalist. So good.”
Harris accepted the offer, prompting her coach to add, “Well, that’s a very awesome thing for Kelly to offer you, and if I ever play another show again, you’re welcome to come sing with me, too.”
Harris and her fellow Season 18 finalists had to adjust their live performances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As concerts start up again, we hope to see Harris gracing even more stages with her talent.
