Shepherd competed against Team Blake's Chris Kroeze and Kirk Jay and Team Jennifer's Kennedy Holmes in the finale.

She picked up every singing opportunity she could get and did a few radio gigs as a child.

Kelly Clarkson has a unusual wish - she hopes her children will be tone deaf. Of course, Clarkson is no stranger herself to winning a huge singing competition, given that she shot to fame as the first American Idol champ back in 2002. Throughout The Voice season, she's often been speaking about how close she is with her parents, grandparents, and siblings and how much she loves her hometown. Additionally, she hit the iTunes Country Top 10 seven times this season and also reached the iTunes Overall Songs Top 10 three times this season, including her duet with Clarkson on "Rockin' With the Rhythm of the Rain". Cartelli recently announced that she has been signed with Atlantic Records.

Shepherd has always loved watching The Voice and has actually auditioned one time before for season 13 in Las Vegas, according to Parade. Kelly shared, "I, obviously, believed in her since the Blinds".

As for coach Kelly Clakson's best advice, Chevel emphasized, "She told me to be myself and to not worry about winning, just to go out there and have lots of fun".

On The Voice, she explained that she learned how to yodel when she was 11 after her mother showed her a video. I want to do that for her. Of the song, Kelly said, "The writers of the song are so excited. I looked shocked. I was still trying to process it in my head, the fact that I won 'The Voice.' I have been dreaming about it since I was a little girl". "I love Loretta [Lynn] and Dolly [Parton] and just the honky-tonkish but classic country sound. I don't even know what to say right now".

"The Voice" has crowned a new victor, and it's good news for Team Kelly.

What does the 16-year-old victor plan to do after winning $100,000 and a record deal?
