Tiny girl. Big voice! Last night on NBC’s hit singing competition, The Voice, 16-year-old Puerto Rican contestant, Raquel Castro beat much-taller contestant Julia Eason in the battle round to advance to the live shows, which will air in the coming weeks.
Castro, who Christina Aguilera picked to be on her team several weeks ago after telling her, "I know from experience that great things come in small packages," showed off her big voice in last night's battle round, delivering powerful vocals and working the stage with confidence to the hit Rihanna song "Only Girl in the World." We especially liked how Raquel kept a big smile on her face throughout the entire battle round - because she looked comfortable and at ease on stage, we felt comfortable watching her.
