Two weeks ago, we watched in awe as singer Morgan Myles took center stage on what was likely the biggest night in her career, so far. She had earned an audition spot on one of the most popular shows on television. The one-time Bostonian was competing in the Blind Audition rounds of NBC’s The Voice.
Morgan had chosen Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” It’s a song universally known, partially because it was featured in the 2001 animated film, Shrek. Chosing a song so familiar, and so connected with another artist can be rough. But Morgan absolutley slayed, hitting every note with perfection delivering passion in every word. The result: 4 chair turns. Every coach wanted Myles on their team. She chose Camila Cabello.
I talked to Morgan about her state on mind going into the competition show. We chatted about her song choice, her coach choice and what’s next for her on the show. We also talked about the singer/songwriter’s connection with Boston, where she lived here and singing the National Anthem at Gillette Stadium. There’s much to get to so, let’s get to it.
