She was decleared the winner of season four on June 18, 2013, becoming the first country artist to win The Voice.

Danielle used to hate performing. She would only sing in front of her best friend and her mom. Even one time at Thanksgiving, she hid under the table and sang a song because she didn't want anyone to look at her. She has said in many interviews, Blake has told her to be herself onstage and have fun. And now she is performing in front of thousands of people!
