Kennedy Holmes '23

November 27, 2018

Kennedy Holmes '23 was featured on stltoday.com and other news media outlets (see below) on on 11.26.18 and 11.27.18 after performing a fan-picked song, Whitney Houston's "The Greatest Love of All," Monday night on The Voice (and remaining in the top 10 contestants): "Kennedy Holmes killed it — once again. The finalist on TV’s The Voice performed Whitney Houston’s version of 'The Greatest Love of All' during Monday night’s broadcast, per fans’ choice. We won’t jinx it and say the 13-year-old from Florissant all but nailed a slot in the finals with this strong, graceful performance. But if she doesn’t go all the way, it’ll be no less than an upset. The results of Monday’s show will air Tuesday when one of the top 13 contestants will be eliminated. Holmes’ coach Jennifer Hudson said Holmes shared a certain natural ability Houston had as well, and advised her on how she should approach the song. 'I know Mama Whitney is proud,' Hudson said after the performance. The video package preceding Holmes’ performance included clips of school mates and fans cheering her on, followed by a St. Louis fan by the name of Kyndall introducing her remotely. The Voice airs on NBC."
