'The Voice:' Valerie Harding Soars Performing Aretha Franklin And Camila Cabello Has Regrets

Soulful singer Valerie Harding has led Camila Cabello to have The Voice regrets.

The Voice is back with a new season, and viewers are already rooting for their favorites. Currently in its blind audition phase, one contestant who is stirring up chatter is Valerie Harding. The singer appeared on episode three and performed “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” By Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. The performance received an offer from Gwen Stefani and John Legend to join their team, and now former Fifth Harmony lead singer Camilla Cabello regrets not turning her chair for Harding.

Harding is a native of Tulsa, and a mother of four. 

Thhe 41-year-old Oklahoma native works at a sound and event setup company, but has a true passion for singing. She is also a performer at a local pub with a retro band alongside her husband, fellow musician Perry Harding.

Camilla Cabello has some regrets

Harding earned her chair turns from Legend and Stefani, with Blake Shelton and Cabello did not turn their chair around. Cabello later regretted not turning her chair. Harding eventually joined Legend’s team.

"You have an incredible voice," Cabello told Harding.

“The reason I didn’t turn around was because there’s a better coach for you than me. Those rifts and runs were crazy. But what I’m looking for is if you have this kind of voice, a song choice that is like completely different, if that makes sense… the juxtaposition of those things.”

Harding stunned viewers

Someone else wrote, "Valerie's voice is very soulful! Sang girl! #TheVoice #VoiceBlinds."
