Amber Carrington wins Knockout Round on NBC-TV’s The Voice

LOS ANGELES (Photos by Rachel Young) – Rockwall country-pop singing sensation Amber Carrington moved one step closer to winning the talent competition on NBC-TV’s “The Voice” last night with her stunning winning performance of “I’m With You” by Avril Lavigne.

Team Adam captain and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine chose 19-year-old Amber as the winner of the first “Knockout Round” of the night over folk-rock duo Midas Whale.

A crowd of about 75 family, friends and fans were on hand at the Allure Restaurant at Chandler’s Landing to cheer Amber on before, during and after her performance.

Watch the video of her performance from The Voice here.

Amber’s grandparents, Ron and Jean Vice (top center photo), said they were speechless and tears filled their eyes as she performed and won the round.

“We absolutely loved it,” said Jean, who has helped raise Amber while her mother, Shonda Gaylord, struggled to overcome cancer but passed away in 2011. “She looked gorgeous up there!”

“Ally B.” Bravata (top right photo), Amber‘s best friend, also said she was speechless.

“I’m so excited and so proud of her,” she smiled.

Jennifer Perryman, who says she is Amber’s #1 fan said her performance was “unbelievable!”

“We’ve been listening to her since she was 12,” she said. “Only Amber could take an Avril Lavigne song, country-ize it and make it her own!”

Family friends, the Young family (bottom left photo), was also thrilled for Amber.

Renae Young said she was “speechless” about her winning performance.

Nathan Young said Amber’s performance was “Amazing. Perfectly sung!” 

Rachel Young said, “We couldn’t be more proud of who she is and what she represents. It’s so exciting watching her dreams come true on national TV!”

Two weeks ago Carrington sang her way onto the competition by defeating Sasha Allen, who also won her Knockout Round last night after being saved by judge Shakira.

Amber’s next performance has not yet been scheduled but her fans will certainly be holding another party somewhere to watch. Stay tuned for further details.

    Amber and Midas Whale were my two picks to win it, so I was disappointed to see them paired in a knockout round. I work at DISH with a lot of Amber fans who said that they were really nervous to see her go up against the duo. She won and fair and square, and I’m just happy that I got to see her performance live. I wasn’t home yet, so I watched from my phone with the DISH Anywhere app. It’s so nice to be able to watch all of my live and recorded TV from home, while I’m on the go; I don’t fall behind or miss out on any program anymore.
