Brooke Simpson stunned all four judges in her The Voice audition in a sneak peek released this week.

Simpson attended Lee University, a Church of God school in Cleveland, Tennessee, which already produced one Voice winner and multiple American Idol alums.

"You know you're good, because I'm a little speechless and that never happens," coach Miley Cyrus says in the clip.

"I had to throw my book at you, and that is a compliment," new coach Jennifer Hudson says.

"Most people who try to do what you do so effortlessly like you do shouldn't do it because you have to be able to sing with proficiency and technically be good but also you have to manage to squeeze in all this soulfulness and passion and power," coach Adam Levine says. "It's really hard to find that. It's one in a million."

"I thought I knew singing until you just came out here and did that," Hudson says.

"Every now and then, there's a singer that comes across this stage that simply needs an opportunity, and that's where you're at with your talent and your artistry," coach Blake Shelton says.

The incredible performer works at Potential Church in Fort Lauderdale, according to her Facebook profile.

The Voice premieres next week. Be sure to be on the lookout for Simpson!
