Kelly Clarkson Teammate Chevel Shepherd Victorious On ‘The Voice’

Chevel Shepherd from Team Kelly Clarkson took home the trophy Tuesday evening (Dec. 18) The Voice finale, besting three other finalists to become the latest champion of the singing competition’s fifteenth season. Her win over fellow country singers Kirk Jay and Chris Kroeze, along with teen pop singer Kennedy Holmes, was notable in that it marked the first time in the show’s history that a country singer won who was not part of judge Blake Shelton’s team.

The 16-year-old from New Mexico impressed judges this season with performances of songs like LeAnn Rimes’ “Blue,” George Strait’s “You Look So Good In Love,” and an original song “Broken Hearts,” which she performed on the first part of the finale on Monday night that helped clinch her victory.
