NBC Parker McKay

Parker McKay is a contestant on NBC’sThe Voice” season 21. She was placed onto Team Kelly Clarkson after her Blind Audition, receiving only the one-chair turn because Clarkson was the only coach with a spot left on her team.

For her Blind Audition, McKay performed Niall Horan’s song “Slow Hands,” which did not make her stand out as the country singer that she told Seacoast Online that she actually is. She does, however, try to sing in multiple genres, which did stand out during her audition.

McKay also shared during her Blind Audition that her mother died very recently at the time of her Blind Audition, and she dedicated the performance to her.

McKay opened up to Seacoast Online about working with Clarkson going into the battle round of the competition.

“What’s really cool about her is that like, there’s never a distinction between when the cameras are on and when they’re off,” she told the outlet. “Like she’s just right there with you as if you’ve been friends your whole life. It’s just so wild seeing her and speaking to her because I feel like I’ve known her, I watched her grow and to have her right there in front of me… it’s like seeing an old friend.”

She added, “It’s just she’s so kind and giving and she totally understands the shoes we’re in, so it’s really easy to connect with her.”

McKay took to Instagram after her blind audition aired to share what it was like to be on “The Voice.”

“The most incredible part of being on a show like this is the camaraderie with the cast and crew as well as how many people are touched by our stories,” she wrote. “It’s all about the human connection! Enjoy and thank you all to the ends of the earth for your support. Here we go, @kellyclarkson!!!”

McKay’s fate in the competition is unclear, as her battle round has yet to air.

She also shared her video of telling her mother, who was suffering from dementia, that she was going to be auditioning for “The Voice.”
