Career



Spensha Baker started her singing career at a very young age as a 2004 contestant on Star Search. She performed at the White House for President George W. Bush.

She released her first album, Outloud!, explaining that she named it Outloud!, because "that is the way I live my life: Openly. I want to succeed and fail out loud. I want to laugh out loud, breathe out loud, love out loud, and live out loud. Not only is this my personal anthem, but I’m positive it can be an anthem for everyone. It's also the title track on my album.”

The Voice

Baker was a 2018 contestant on Season 14 of the U.S. The Voice. She auditioned for the show in an episode broadcast on March 6, 2018 singing "Blackbird" by the Beatles.

Coach Shelton picked Baker to move to the Knockouts round. Spensha won the Knockout vs. Austin Giorgio and moved on to the Live Playoffs.
