The Voice Season 21 is underway and Monday night’s Blind Auditions brought plenty of talent and surprises. One such surprise came from a sibling trio that left all four coaches fighting over them.
The trio, called Girl Named Tom, consist of siblings Bekah, Caleb and Joshua Liechty, wowed the judges with a stunning rendition of Crosby, Stills & Nash’s “Helplessly Hoping.” Coach Kelly Clarkson was the first to turn her chair followed by John Legend. It didn’t take long for veteran coach Blake Shelton and first-timer Ariana Grande to follow suit.
All four of the coaches took turns trying to convince the group to choose their team.
“I loved how tightly-knit those harmonies were,” Ariana complimented. John Legend tries to convince them with his own story of singing with his family.
“I grew up singing with my family in Ohio,” John said. “I’ve arranged for a cappella and gospel, and so I’ve always loved what harmonies can do when they’re done right.”
But, Girl Named Tom eventually chose to be a part of Kelly Clarkson’s team, no doubt due in part to her enthusiastic reaction to their performance.
“I am so stoked about Girl Named Tom,” Clarkson said. “With the family harmony that they represent, they are so special. I’m shocked that they picked me!”

So, where did the siblings come up with their group name? In a post-performance interview, Girl Named Tom explained that Bekah is the girl named Tom. According to the brothers, they had hopes of having another brother and when Bekah was born chose to call her Tom.
