Katrina Cain, the UNT graduate who stood out on NBC’s The Voice in 2018, returns to the Lakeside Music Series in Lakeside (2412 Lakeside Pkwy, Flower Mound) on Friday, September 17, at 7:30 pm.
Cain last performed at Lakeside in May of 2018, just a few months before she received the call from LA to audition on The Voice.
Her rendition of “Rhiannon” during the blind auditions in October 2018 excited all four of the judges.
“You should have been a four-chair turn (meaning all of the judges approved of her),” insisted judge Adam Levine immediately following the song. “You were so epic.”
Levine and Kelly Clarkson, however, had already filled their teams and weren’t eligible to select another singer. Cain chose Blake Shelton as her coach over Jennifer Hudson.
After being eliminated in the third round, Cain and husband Andrew McMillian decided to remain in LA. She’s been working as a performer, songwriter, and studio vocalist there ever since.
But periodically she returns to Texas to perform and visit friends.
“Playing in the plaza at Lakeside is always a bright spot on my calendar,” said Cain, who is shuttling between gigs in DFW and Austin this week.
“It’s a beautiful outdoor setting where everyone comes to listen. I like the family friendly atmosphere, too. We can relax and share a great evening together.”
Expect Cain’s “melancholy pop” repertoire to include some of her own creations as well as tunes ranging from Coldplay and Elton John to Led Zeppelin and, of course, Fleetwood Mac.
