Ddendyl Hoyt: “The Voice” Underdog

Source: http://thevoice.hollywoodjunket.com/

Wow! I have to admit that I was really disappointed in tonight’s episode of “The Voice” There were A LOT of already almost-famous people. A lot of musicians that have already had a chance with recording albums, opening for huge names, etc. I was craving something different and someone that had a story that sounded something like, “I love music. I can sing. I am waiting to be discovered.” And then Ddendyl Hoyt walked onto the stage in an adorable polka dot dress singing, “Stand By Me.” What am amazing twist on an already incredible song. You know what else I loved? That her back story was all about music.  It was about how she inherited an eclectic music taste from her father. Her story didn’t make me sad, it made me smile. In case you missed it:

What a sweet and unique voice. She is very different than all the other contestants on the show so far. So why only one chair turn? Clearly Shakira had all the brains tonight. The guys really missed their mark here. Ddendyl could easily be, “The Voice.” She reminded me a lot of Norah Jones, before Norah Jones tried to go too unique and funky with her sound. Ddendyl has a voice that you just don’t hear often. A sweet lounge  singer sound. Which makes sense that she is a lounge singer in DC right now. 

I would buy Ddendyl Hoyt’s album at this very minute and add it to my play list of “Mellow Music That Makes Me Happy.” I love her sound and I think that America is going to fall in love with her throughout this competition. The Twitter-verse was already reacting to Ddenyl tonight:

Not only do I really, really hope that Ddendyl stays true to her sound during the competition, but wouldn’t everyone love to see her and her dad on stage together? I mean.. how cute is her dad? He has that sweet kilt, and the bag pipes.. and he plays other instruments that I can honestly say I have only ever heard of in association with Zelda. That can only mean they could make some killer unique music together.

Alright, Ddendyl Hoyt, let’s see what you’ve got! I think based on only one chair turning tonight, it’s safe to say she’s an underdog in this competition. Do NOT underestimate Ddendyl and her sound. I really want to see her get deep into the competition. Even if she doesn’t become, “The Voice,” when can I buy her album?

    I am so happy that Ddendyl has had such a positive response. She is a remarkable young woman. For me and others she is our local girl. The first time I heard her sing was at Christmas Eve in church. Her voice blew me away then. So, please when the voting starts pick those phones or text in those votes. Give her a chance to share that beautiful voice with world.

    I remember the first time I ever heard Ddendyl sing — it was years ago at our son’s elementary school Christmas concert. All of the families in attendance were so proud to hear carols being sung by the children’s choir. Then Ddendyl came to the front to sing a solo — I can’t even describe the reaction that everyone felt to hearing her voice — amazing, beautiful, soul-touching doesn’t even come close. I hope that by being on The Voice she has the opportunity to further share her gift and grow into the performance artist she wants to be. All the best Ddendyl!

    I got a chance to see her in the Washington D.C. area last Nov. Just got lucky and went to the right lounge I guess. I saw the beauty and talent back then. There were rumblings about a “TV show” or something…but man this is just fantastic. I’m a fan for sure!!!

    We were so excited that you made it through Ddendyl. You have an amazing voice. We can’t wait to see you perform again. The Castile community will be cheering you on.

    I saw Ddendyl on “The Voice” for the first time last night, and for those my age, I thought of Phoebe Snow and a bit of Tracy Chapman. After visiting her website and listening further, I think she’s a very unique artist who conveys a lot of feeling and has excellent control over volume and pitch. Good luck, Ddendyl, here’s hoping you go far in your career.
