Violette Wautier Impressed All 4 Coaches On ‘The Voice Thailand’
Violette’s smooth tone and unique song choice really had all of the coaches impressed during her audition for The Voice Thailand. Coach Joey Boy actually pressed his button to turn around in a matter of seconds. The other three judges soon turned around as well, making this a four-chair turn. She ultimately chose Joey as her coach.
Joey’s coaching helped her win the Battle Round against Ann Yuppadee after the pair sang “คุกเข่า.” Again Violette’s vocals caught the coach’s attention.
One of her most memorable performances on the show was when she went a little bit country with the song “99 Problems.” She ended up going home after this performance in The Knockouts but it truly was unforgettable.
Where Is She Now?
After appearing on the show, Violette continued to pursue music. She released her debut single “Smoke” in 2018. Not surprisingly, it did very well on the charts and became the most-streamed English-language song in Thailand. It also took the top spot on the Apple Music charts in eight countries. In 2020, she actually became the most-streamed English-language Thai artist on YouTube.
She released her debut album “Glitter and Smoke” after the success of her song “Smoke.” The music video for her song “I’d Do It Again” has almost four million views on YouTube.
Violette also shared her story of battling scoliosis since she was 14 years old. “I’m proud of my scoliosis because it proves that I went through a lot,” she said. “It’s a part of me. I feel like I should embrace everything about myself. If I don’t like myself, who else is gonna like me?” She currently has a huge Instagram following of 2.7 million people.
Music isn’t the only thing she has conquered since appearing on The Voice Thailand. Violette starred in the Thai adaption of the drama series Endless Love. Her acting skills actually got her a Suphannahong Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the romance films Heart Attack and A Gift. Not to mention she has worked with designer brands like Chanel and even landed the cover of Elle Thailand.
Violette speaks both Thai and French but decided to sing in English for her original music because she is very comfortable with the language. She grew up with several musical inspirations including Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey.
