John Legend on The Voice on Oct. 8, 2019. 

There was a flurry of turns -- and some unusual tactics from one coach -- when R&B singer Khalea Lynee stepped up to the The Voice stage Tuesday night 

Hailing from Florida, the talented mom auditioned with “Best Part” by Daniel Caesar. And she seriously won over the pros, earning a four-chair turn.

“Your tone is so beautiful,” John Legend remarked. “Every choice you made was spot on. You just mesmerized all four of us and this entire audience. You have so much passion but you also have discipline.”   

When Lynee admitted her all-time hero was Anita Baker, Kelly Clarkson and Gwen Stefani leapt up in excitement.

The fight was on. Everyone pitched their team, and Legend tried his secret recipe; he enticed her with an Anita Baker song. “I’m going to give you the best that I’ve got, Khalea,” he crooned.

Of course, Team Legend won.
