Stephanie Rice, formerly of Texarkana, TX, joined '
Team Gwen Stefani' during the premiere of Season 12 of
The Voice Monday, February 27, 2017 during the Blind Auditions.

While Stephanie is on Gwen's team, Stefani's boyfriend and fellow coach
Blake Shelton promises to look for a chance to 'steal' Rice during the upcoming rounds. Previous to trying out for
The Voice, Stephanie was a scientist at Baylor University and performed with her band
Colonial Blue. For her audition, Rice delivered a powerful performance of
Piece by Piece by Kelly Clarkson drawing on the pain of being rejected by her family after coming out.
