Shania Twain joins ‘The Voice’ as key advisor

By: Hayley Bradbrook

Shania Twain has signed on to serve as a key advisor on The Voice. The superstar will appear on the Apr. 24 episode to mentor the remaining 12 contestants. “Excited to announce that I’ll appear on the @nbcthevoice this month,” tweeted the star on Thursday (Apr. 13). The 51-year-old is following in the recent footsteps of fellow Canadian Celine Dion, who helped coach Gwen Stefani’s team earlier in the season.

With a career that spans more than two decades, Shania is beyond qualified to serve up some wisdom to aspiring singers. And while we can’t wait to see her on our screens again, the announcement has us yearning for new music from the Timmins native.

Fans might not have to wait too much longer as she is putting the final touches on her long-awaited album and recently revealed some interesting little tidbits about the record to Billboard.

At the publication’s Women in Music event last month, the “Come on Over” songstress admitted that fans will be very surprised about her new sound. “[They] will hear a lot of things that they never knew,” Shania explained.

Still, Shania hopes they enjoy the record when it is released. “I hope that they can expect to be satisfied, I hope I exceed their expectations,” she stated.

The new record is more than a decade in the making. Shania’s last album Up! was released in 2002 and after touring the world, the mother of one set up shop in Las Vegas before wrapping up her residency in Dec. 2014.
