Worship Leader Advances to “The Voice” Finals After Powerful Rendition of “Break Every Chain”


A worship leader who has sung in church choirs since she was a little girl made an impressive pass into the finals of the singing competition show “The Voice” after a powerful rendition of the Gospel classic “Break Every Chain.”

Jershika Maple, 25, was at the bottom of the competition on the program when she was given the chance to perform in order to progress, a feat which she accomplished in stunning form.

Although The Christian Post notes that she had a sore throat at the time, she belted out Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s anthem to standing ovations from all the judges and wild cheers from the crowd.

She ended the performance in tears, and you’ll probably have a hard time choking them back yourself after watching her incredible, Spirit-filled performance:

It is a humbling reminder of the power of the Gospel to permeate the hearts of those who may least expect it to witness such a talented singer sing on national TV “There is power in the name of Jesus!” in front of thousands of viewers.


Maple began singing when she was just 3 years old, and her parents noted she sang the “Barney” theme song with considerable talent.

“So, my mom put me in the church choir. I was in the children’s choir, every choir you could think of ever since,” she told The Shreveport Times.  “I was big in the choir scene.”

Earlier on the show, Maple sang “God Only Knows,” originally performed by for King & Country.
