Hello Sunday, Joana Martinez and Myracle Holloway perform “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” during The Voice Live Finale, Part 2 2019.
Week: 6 (Finale)
Song: “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” by Supremes
Hello Sunday (Chelsea and Myla) both grew up singing in school showcases. They met two years ago at a performing arts camp and were paired together because they were the youngest. After hearing how well their voices blended, they decided to officially become a duo. They attended an artist development camp to sharpen their skills, and after posting some music videos online, they started getting requests to sing at local events. They enjoy using their music to spread positivity and are making history on “The Voice” as the youngest duo ever.
Joana Martinez gets her talent from her father, who plays the drums and trumpet but was unable to pursue a musical career. As a shy kid, she used to make her family and friends turn around when she would sing, but performing helped her blossom. In middle school, she was nominated “Most Likely to Win ‘The Voice,’” and at 13 sang the national anthem at a Miami Heat game and later performed at a Miami Marlins game. As a second generation Cuban-American, she enjoys singing in both Spanish and English. Joana is currently a sophomore in high school at the Miami Arts Studio magnet school, where she also participates in musical theater.
Myracle Holloway knew she was destined to sing after joining the children’s choir at age 7. She started singing competitively and was discovered after high school by Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind & Fire and was invited to join his tour. While early success looked promising, Myracle was secretly dealing with emotional trauma from past abuse. These issues led to depression and misuse of substances, which pushed her to take a break and seek therapy. Through worship, Myracle began her recovery journey and later moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Myracle comes to “The Voice” to give her music career a second chance.
“You Keep Me Hangin’ On” is a 1966 song written and composed by Holland–Dozier–Holland. It first became a popular Billboard Hot 100 number one hit for the American Motown group the Supremes in late 1966. The rock band Vanilla Fudge covered the song a year later and had a top ten hit with their version. British pop singer Kim Wilde covered “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” in 1986, bumping it back to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June 1987. The single reached number 1 by two different musical acts in America. In the first 32 years of the Billboard Hot 100 rock era, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” became one of only six songs to achieve this feat. In 1996, country music singer Reba McEntire’s version reached number 2 on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.
Over the years, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” has been covered by various other artists including Lisa Hartman, Wilson Pickett, Rod Stewart, Colourbox, the Index and The Box Tops.
