Brooke Mills Simpson (born May 22, 1991) is an American singer and songwriter from Hollister, North Carolina. She finished third place of the thirteenth season on Team Miley Cyrus of NBC's talent competition, The Voice.[1]

Early life[edit]

Brooke Simpson was born to an Evangelical family, which caused her to first find her love of singing at age 7. She grew up traveling and singing with them, as well as attending pow wows hosted by the Haliwa-Saponi tribe, of which she is a full-blood member.[2] Before The Voice, she moved from her hometown of Hollister, North Carolina to Fort Lauderdale, Florida with her husband, Ray Simpson, and considered other careers instead of singing.[3][4] Her parents are Jimille and Mike Mills,[5] and she has two siblings who are eight years younger than her, twins Leah and Mikey.[6]

Brooke Simpson met her vocal coach, Andrez Franco, in 2013.
