She posted the video on her social media and the only way was up from there. What started just as summer fun between teenagers turned into the road to fame for Cecily Hennigan.

After posting the video, Hennigan was on The Today Show as well as The Steve Harvey Show and several local news stations in Conway, South Carolina.

Hennigan was interviewed via email by ABC News as well, where she explained that the video wasn’t planned, they just did it on a whim. And this was the whim of a lifetime.

Prior to the drive-thru video, Hennigan had classical voice training and attends The Governors School for the Arts and Humanities in Greenville, South Carolina.

Her performance was impressive for judges and fans alike, her voice training really paying off and impressing everyone.

However, Blake Shelton was the only judge to turn around with everyone else being picky about finishing their teams.

The incredible performance is just the beginning of Cecily Hennigan’s career. We’re looking forward to seeing her success with Blake Shelton on The Voice.
