Drennan is the youngest contestant to win The Voice and pipped busker Joe Moore at the post during Sunday’s Live Finale on Channel Nine. She wowed the live audience with a beautiful rendition of Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares To You as well as a second strong performance of Beyonce’s Halo with her coach, Jessie J.
Jessie J rushed to the aid of a teary Drennan as she was announced as the winner with the young starlet saying,
“I honestly can’t believe I just won! This has been the most amazing experience. Thank you to all my friends and family and of course Jessie J for supporting me through this and always seeing the best in me. Thanks to everyone who voted for me and making this happen. What a ride!”
Australian-owned music streaming service, Guvera, released the Winner’s Singles from this year’s Finalists. The original songs are available for fans to listen to on demand, providing them with the opportunity to enjoy and connect with each Finalist and their handpicked song.
Each finalist has recorded an original song that should they win will go on to be released (via Universal Music) as an official single as part of winning The Voice 2015. Here are the four original Winner’s Singles along with the beautiful cover artwork. Stream the songs below…
Ellie Drennan, Ghost
“My song ‘Ghost’ (written by James Harry Nosanow, Jacob William Hoggard) is about not fitting in and self-doubt which makes you feel like people can’t see or hear you. I had the most amazing time recording this song and I’m really excited to share it with Australia.”
Joe Moore, Invincible
“I can’t wait for everyone to hear my single. The song is called ‘Invincible’. It’s a song I co-wrote with Michael Fatkin and Ben Hastings. In short, it’s a breakup song. The message is deep and is along the lines of ‘I loved you, how could you do this to us?’”
Liam Maihi, Remember
“My song is ‘called Remember’ (written by D. Brown, Courtney Harrell, Taylor Hill) and it’s about love and loss. It has an organic sound and I hope you like it – I’m pretty proud of it.”
Nathan Hawes, Mercy
“‘Mercy’ (written by Christian Lo Russo, Joel Chapman, Mike Waters) is about some wrong decisions that we sometimes make and moving forward to become a better person. It’s always a great experience recording in studio, and I hope everyone likes it.”
