Did you think 16-year-old singer Raquel Castro looked familiar last night on The Voice? She played the “girl” in Ben Affleck‘s film, Jersey Girl! Now she’s all grown up and trying to make it in the music business.
Raquel sang “Bleeding Love” on The Voice and Christina Aguilera locked in the actress-turned-hopeful-singer to join her team.
“I can say from my own experience that great things come in small packages.” Christina said of Raquel’s young age. “I love your hair and your look. You are so cute! I’m excited to see what we can do together!”
“This has been a dream since I was four years old,” Raquel said. “Hopefully this makes my dream come true.”
But she has a tough competition ahead of her as one of the youngest competitors!
Good luck, Jersey Girl!
