Marybeth Byrd and Jake Hoot: "Up Where We Belong" - The Voice Live Top 8
Hometown: Armorel, Arkansas
Residence: Armorel, Arkansas
Marybeth grew up with a terrible stutter and was constantly teased. Speech therapy didn’t help, but one day her parents heard her sing and realized she wasn’t stuttering. Music became her refuge, and after performing at several charity events, she soon became known as the soul singer in her small country town. Outside of singing, Marybeth loves to help her dad with his pop-up food truck called Big Byrd’s BBQ. Marybeth recently graduated high school and comes to “The Voice” to see if she can make it on the big stage before committing to college.
