Cal Poly Grad Auditions for Spot on ‘The Voice’


Cal Poly Graduate Lyndsey Elm

A Cal Poly graduate is hoping to sing her way into the national spotlight this fall as she auditions for a popular reality singing competition.

Lyndsey Elm (B.S., Kinesiology, 2014) will appear Monday night on the season nine premier of NBC’s “The Voice.”

“It's been such a crazy fun ride so far,” Elm said. “I can't wait to experience it with everyone.”

Elm has been performing in the northern California area since graduating, including a recent performance at the Cuvee E. Wine Bar in Vacaville, Calif., according to her personal website.

Kellie Hall, associate dean in the College of Science & Mathematics and a kinesiology professor, remembers Elm as exactly the type of student to try new things and take on challenges like auditioning for a reality show.

“Lyndsey was always the first student to volunteer to jump into an activity or try the first run through on a lab technique,” Hall said. “With all of our Learn by Doing opportunities here in kinesiology at Cal Poly, she had many chances to try new things, and somehow she always came out smiling.”

The show is split into five stages of competition, beginning with blind auditions, where the show’s four musician coaches decide whether or not a contestant moves on based solely on hearing their voice. If Elm makes it past the blind audition phase, she will be coached by one of four big-name musical artists. This year’s judges include Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.

“The Voice” airs at 8 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
