Drew shares her voice


Does Drew Walker have the voice? The 23 year-old Echuca woman, and the rest of the country, will get the chance to find out after she turned all four chairs on the opening episode of reality show The Voice on Sunday.

While she had a choice of Aussie stars Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy or UK sensation Rita Ora, Drew selected megastar Keith Urban as her coach.

Sitting at a piano she wowed with her her stripped-down version of Down Under by Men At Work.

The singer, who performs as a solo artist as well as one half of acoustic duo August, admits she had thoughts about auditionin­g for the show in the past, though it was ultimately ‘‘2020 and the year that was’’ which prompted her to finally try her luck.

‘‘I just wanted to get out there and try something else. It’s been very quiet, and most of the time as a solo artist or duo we play for big events, like footy clubs or parties, so they definitely didn’t happen last year.’’
