A country singer from Gaylord advanced to the next round of NBC’s reality TV show The Voice. Lauren Duski is a 25 year-old singer-songwriter who grew up performing in northern Michigan. 

She sang You Were Meant for Me by Jewel, during her first appearance Monday night. 

Duski says attending Interlochen Arts Camp in 2001 influenced her decision to pick that particular song.

“I chose the Jewel song because not only do I think she’s an insane songwriter and artist but we have that Interlochen, northern Michigan connection too," she explains. "So, it was definitely rooted in my song choice as well.”

Lauren Duski joined the team coached by country star, Blake Shelton. She says the whole experience so far has been surreal.

“The entire community of northern Michigan and the entire state of Michigan...has been insanely supportive," she says. "I’ve been crying since the beginning of the week. It’s been overwhelming, that’s for sure.”

Season 12 of the The Voice continues Thursday night on NBC.
