Nashvillian Chloe Kohanski was named the winner for the 13th season of The Voice on Tuesday evening (Dec. 19). The 23-year-old Kohanski, who was part of Team Blake, made an impression on both viewers and the coaches by belting out classic ’80s and ’90s rock songs each week, including Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse Of The Heart,” Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is,” and Blondie’s “Call Me,” and her blind audition song, Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.”
During last night’s live finale, she teamed with Billy Idol to perform “White Wedding.” After being named the winner, she earned a recording contract with Universal Music Group, as well as a $100,000 grand prize.
Kohanski graduated from Donelson Christian Academy in 2012. After initially attending Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee, with intentions of becoming a teacher, Kohanski dropped out and began working as a Starbucks barista in Nashville while pursuing a music career.
Kohanski’s win marks Blake Shelton’s sixth victory as a coach on the show. Kohanski beat fellow Team Shelton member Red Marlow, Team Adam Levine’s Addison Agen, and Team Miley Cyrus’ Brooke Simpson.
