Austin on the tube
One could say she "landed" a spot on one of the hottest vocal competition shows, and you'd be right.
As reported by NBC affilliate KXAN, Lex Land, an Austin singer-songwriter, was chosen by judge Blake Shelton after she did a sultry rendition of "I Can't Make You Love Me" in Monday night's NBC show, "The Voice."
Shelton said he heard three different styles of vocalist in her rendition, and wanted to help her decide which of those she should focus on as she moves on in the competition. Land agreed, and was excited to join Team Blake.
Land is quite the accomplished songwriter, with some of her original songs on television shows such as "Private Practice," "One Tree Hill" and "Castle." She also volunteers at Girls Rock Camp Austin . There she mentors young girls as they develop their singing and instrumental talents.
Land's page on "The Voice" says she is a huge Judy Garland fan, and that she loves cooking and playing the ukelele.
Land joins another artist with Austin ties, Jonathas was named to Team Christina. Jonathas is originally from Brazil but now makes his home with his family in Austin.
