LIMERICK singer/songwriter Kellie Lewis has reached the quarter finals of the Voice of Ireland and hopes to get everyone here in Limerick to get behind her and support with your votes this Sunday. 10 acts remain in the competition with a combination of public votes and judge’s scoring deciding the 6 acts will make it through to the semi finals.

Kellie Lewis from Kilbehenny on the Limerick/Cork border is studying music at UCC spoke to Limerick Post this week. She chose The Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan, one of her biggest influences, as her coach and mentor on the show. A decision that Kellie is thrilled about.

“She is amazing, apart from my family and friends Delores is my favourite person in the world. We connect very well together , her journey and her story is exactly what I need and where I want to be in a couple of years time. She has been idol of mine since I was eight years old.”

Kellie has made some great song choices so far singing Kate Bush’ Running Up that Hill’ in the blind auditions that led to three judges fighting it out to have Kellie on their team. This Sunday she will sing a recent rock hit from the band that headlined Electric Picnic 2013. Kellie is a staunch Limerick hurling supporter and hopes everyone will fly the green flag and get voting for her when the lines open at the end of the show.

Up for grabs for Kellie Lewis should she win the contest is a recording contract with Universal Records.
