Beth Spangler, a senior radiographer at Children's Hospital of Georgia in Augusta, has always had a passion for music. Now she has a chance to leave her healthcare career behind as she vies for a recording contract with United Artists Media Group.
On the Oct. 20 episode of “The Voice,” Spangler's battle duet of “I Turn to You” wasn't strong enough to beat out competitor Mia Pfirrman. But judge Gwen Stefani saved the 30-year-old from going home when she used one of her “steals” to bring Spangler on to Team Gwen from judge Adam Levine's team.
Spangler will now compete in the “knockout” rounds, where she will still need to outperform her teammates to move on to the finals.
The Aiken, S.C., resident grew up in a family of musicians, and spent her time performing in church as well as at weddings and funerals. Her practical parents, however, steered her toward a career in healthcare.
