THE Voice’s Kelly Clarkson and guest coach Snoop Dogg broke down in tears as contestant Anna Grace revealed she “almost died” from serious illness.
On tonight’s episode of the NBC competition, the rapper – who is this season’s Mega Mentor – and pop star both had “tears streaming” following the emotional performance.
The Voice contender, Anna, 20, rehearsed with her superstar coaches before participating in the second Battle Rounds.
She explained that she was going to do The Band Perry’s country hit, If I Die Young, but added her own personal spin to the track.
“This song is a tense song,” Kelly, 39, said as she asked why she chose the sad ballad.
Anna replied: “When I was 17, I got really sick with a bunch of infections and nearly lost my life because of that.
“Music is what got me through this. ‘If I Die Young,’ that was almost me. The line that hits me the most is ‘lord make me a rainbow I’ll shine down on my mother.’
“Because my mom and I are so close, I was worried what would happen to her if something happened to me. That’s still my biggest fear everyday. She’s my biggest supporter.”
Kelly then sobbed and cried: “I literally have tears streaming down my face.”
“Your story is amazing because you overcame it. I’m trying to keep these tears from rolling out of my eyes,” Snoop said as he wiped his face.
