Voice's Chamuel sings for Fenway crowd
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Wellesley native and "The Voice" finalist, Michelle Chamuel, sang ‘God Bless America’ at Wednesday night’s Red Sox game.
She sang the song during the 7th inning stretch. She is now only one of five people left on NBC’s ‘the Voice’.
“Being the last member of Team Usher, I’m like, I need to hang on to this with all I’ve got, for the two of us,” said Chamuel.
She said it’s awesome to have made it this far, but the contestants form such a tight bond.
“That kind of hurts every time someone gets sent away, it’s almost like a piece of you is getting rejected…At the same time there is a joy in still being able to be here. What’s so cool about the show too is that America is invested in helping these people get what they want,” she said.
There’s something genuine about Michelle and America sees it.
“People are voting or people are responding, people are saying ‘oh I feel more like being myself because I see you.’ That’s all on them and it’s so cool to hear,” said Chamuel.
Walking down Yawkey way isn’t what it used to be for her. ‘The Voice’ star could barely walk ten feet without someone wanting an autograph from her or a picture. But she was incredibly humble and at times a little uncomfortable with the attention.
“Let me run away,” she joked.
But on stage, she’s an entirely different person.
It was a quick homecoming trip, she took the red-eye Tuesday night and is headed back to LA on Thursday.
