It was ‘The Voice’ moment that left the coaches in tears, and Sonia Kruger unable to speak – Natasha Stuart’s spellbinding performance on last night’s episode of the reality show.
The talented 41-year-old – who was diagnosed with breast cancer – took to the stage with a choir of friends to sing Rozalla’s ‘Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)’.
Understandably, the emotional performance left Delta, Kelly and Sonia bawling.
“I saw your dad in the audience,” Sonia said after the performance, pausing to take a deep breath while tears rolled down her face.
“And it just made me think about my dad and your relationship with him. The whole thing. Everything you have been through, it’s amazing. You’re amazing.”
Prior to appearing on The Voice, the backup singer had just completed 20 weeks of chemotherapy.
“I was just going about my business, singing, just gigging with my band and doing a few little bits and pieces of touring,” she told the coaches during her audition.
“And then I was lying in bed literally the day after I got back from two months on the road. There was a lump and I was like, ‘That’s nothing.’
“But I went to the doctor the next day just so that they could tell me that it was definitely nothing. But it wasn’t, it was breast cancer.”
Unfortunately, Natasha was eliminated from the competition during the episode.
The Voice continues Monday at 7:30pm on Channel Nine.
