SPOKANE, Wash. -

Ira Yaeger said it's "pretty impressive" that his sister, 19-year-old Brenna Yaeger, made it through the Blind Auditions on NBC's The Voice.

"We all were just dumbstruck by how good she did and how they turned around super fast," said Ira Yaeger.

Brenna graduated from Mead High School in 2014. Andy Arnold, Brenna's engineering teacher, said he always knew where Brenna was when she was there. "She was always humming in my class, which makes sense now because of The Voice. She always had her guitar, you know bring her guitar to class," said Arnold.

While at Mead High School, Brenna was able to focus on two of her passions: music and engineering. She performed at school talent shows, and took engineering classes for four years.

"Freshman year she took our intro to engineering class, and she loved it and she was good at it," said Arnold. "She stuck with it for four years, so it was fun to have her in there."

"She would always like try to build stuff, get me to do a bunch of woodshop and like all that and I really got into it," said Ira Yaeger.

As Brenna advances on The Voice, she has a lot of support back home.

"All of our staff is proud of her, wish her well and hope that she goes far," said Arnold.

"If anything goes wrong, or if anything goes perfect, still, she's my sister," said Ira Yaeger.
