HOLLYWOOD, California -- Des Moines native Sharane Calister will find out on Tuesday night whether she's in the top 10 of The Voice.
The judges said Calister took on a big song when she sang Mariah Carey's "Hero," which she dedicated to her twin sister. She also said the song speaks to finding strength within herself.
"There was times I didn't believe in myself, you know, I wanted to give up, but I just have to tell myself, like, 'you're a stronger person, only you can give up in life.' And if you have a dream and you wanna fulfill it, you have to chase after it. You can't take no, don't listen to outside people, you've gotta do what you want to do, because at the end of the day it's your life and only you can live it," said Calister. "So that's how I relate to it, you know, I'm here living my dream. I'm on the red carpet right now, it's so crazy!"
The singer said she fought back tears towards the end of the song.
The Voice starts on Tuesday at 7 p.m. on NBC.
