‘The Voice‘ Season 18 has given us some fantastic performers. The NBC series has witnessed a host of talented singers who’ve amazed us on set and equally blown our minds in the intimate, personal performances they’ve delivered in light of the coronavirus pandemic. One contestant who’s continued to sing spectacularly has been Toneisha Harris. After her commendable audition, she chose to be on Team Blake.
However, even before Season 18 has come to a close, Toneisha snagged offers from two mentors to perform at their concerts. Despite being a part of Team Blake, Kelly could not help but extend an offer to Harris to share the stage with her in Las Vegas. Blake quickly chimed in that if he ever performed live again, he’d be honored to have Toneisha on the stage. Naturally, you might want to know more about her. We have got you covered.

That said, Toneisha’s foundations of singing were developed by her mom and aunts when she joined their gospel group. Although her mother was strict about Harris singing only gospel music, her father would take her on drives where she could sing R&B songs. Thus, it was after her father’s death that Harris decided to part ways with the group and take up R&B singing. However, Toneisha has immense respect for the impact her mother has had on her singing career. You can check out a heartfelt post she’s made crediting her for who Toneisha is today.
It is evident that Toneisha has had practice professionally from a very young age, and has taken a step back when required. She seems to have her priorities in place and enjoys the support of her family, which might be enough to see her emerging as the next champion.
