The Voice is back for another season, and this year’s round of blind auditions is already filled with a lot of great talents. Contestant Keisha Renee impressed with her soulful rendition of “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” a crossover hit that was originally penned and recorded by Don Gibson.

The impressive cover won the hearts of judges Blake Shelton, Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus and Adam Levine. Renee has honed her vocal skills by working as a backup singer for big acts like Nicki Minaj and former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert. And although we’re only one episode in, Renee appears to be one of the strongest contenders so far.

Watch her entire blind audition below.

“I Can’t Stop Loving You” was released by Gibson in 1958 as the B-side of his hit single, “Oh, Lonesome Me.” The track was famously covered by Ray Charles in 1962 and featured on his now-classic record Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music.
