SHREWSBURY – Cara Brindisi – a Worcester singer and Shrewsbury native – made it to the next round of competition on ‘The Voice.’ 

On Monday night, she and country singer Jay Allen battled on the stage, singing “Leather and Lace” by Don Henley and Stevie Nicks. 

Brindisi and Allen are on Gwen Stefani’s team, and the duo received a standing ovation from Stefani after their performance.  

However, when it came down to decision time, Stefani ultimately chose Brindisi. 

“I picked Cara because to be that effortless when you sing in a live setting is really hard to do. And, she is very in tune with her art, which is her singing,” she said. 

After Brindisi was crowned winner of the battle, she ran off stage and embraced Stefani. Allen was “stolen” by fellow coach Blake Shelton and will advance to the next round, too.

Brindisi said that so far she has learned valuable lessons about the music industry thanks to her time on “The Voice.” 

“What you learn quickly when you are out there [on “The Voice” stage] among incredible singers and musicians is that everyone has their own lane in music. When you can look at that as inspiration as opposed to competition, you really start to feel more settled in your own confidence and your own voice,” she said.

Brindisi attended Berklee College of Music, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in music therapy. She later worked as a hospice music therapist at the Visiting Nurse Association of Boston. 

She told the Community Advocate that her hometown of Shrewsbury and the rest of the Central Massachusetts community has been “very supportive” of her musical career by attending her shows and sharing her music on social media.
