Rabat – Moroccan candidate Wiman Radwan mesmerized the jury of the Voice Middle East after she performed “you are the reason” by Calum Scott during the third blind audition of the competition on Saturday, October 5.
Before turning around to convince the Moroccan woman to join their team, the jury members were touched by her calm and strong vocals.
Egyptian singer Mohamed Hamaki was the first to buzz the button to discover that the strong vocals come o from a beautiful woman with pink lipstick, stylish glasses, and shiny long black hair.
The 22-year old woman from Casablanca was sitting in a wheelchair, concentrating on performing her song and astonishing the jury.
It took a few seconds for Moroccan diva Samira Said to join her jury colleague Hamaki. The singer publicly praised the young woman for her enthusiasm and the positive energy she brought to The Voice stage.
Jury members Ahlam and Raghib Alama, two singers from the Middle East, also turned around for Wiman.
Suffering from myopathy, the Moroccan woman dreams of becoming a singer despite all the challenges she is facing due to her illness.
Myopathy is a disease of the muscles that causes muscle fibers to not function correctly.
All of the jury members wanted to have Wiam in their teams, but she finally chose Hamaki, who shed some tears for her strength and the positive energy.
“She was stronger than all of us,” he said.
Wiam qualified for the second phase of the competition.
