KHQ - If you are not a fan of 'The Voice' it's time to become one because this season Spokane has a local girl to root for. Brenna Yaeger, had her blind audition performance on Tuesday, March 3rd and managed to wow a couple of the judges to earn a spot on the show.

Brenna is a Mead High School graduate and when she is not performing at bars and local bars and other venues, she works at The General Store on Division as a cashier. Brenna grew up with her four older sisters and younger brother in a log cabin that her dad built for the family with his own two hands but when her parents got divorced, her family had to sell the house, something she knows broke her dad's heart.

Knowing this about her past, it was fitting that for her blind audition performance, Brenna sang "The House That Built Me" by Miranda Lambert. The song is so near and dear to her heart that she and her sisters have the song tattooed on their feet. During her incredible performance, Brenna managed to get Adam and Blake to turn around, in the end choosing Miranda Lambert's husband to be her coach.

Go Brenna Yaeger and Go Team Blake!

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.
