This time last year, Danielle Bradbery was a 16-year-old student at Cy Ranch High School who loved dancing and riding horses and hadn't done much singing outside her own bedroom. Then her family entered her into the Dallas auditions for NBC's high-rated singing show The Voice -- without asking her first.

"They were like, 'Let's just see what happens' and I was like, 'Okay,' says Bradbery by phone, on a break from doing radio promos somewhere in Ohio. "I was really scared. I was like, 'Wait a second... I don't know if I can do this. Y'all are just throwing me out there like that.'"
This evening Bradbery will perform at City Hall -- part of Mayor Annise Parker's official Holiday Celebration and Tree Lighting -- as the reigning Voice champion, the youngest in the show's history. She's still not old enough to vote, but soon will be confronted with options like which tour to join once she gets off the road with Brad Paisley.More »
