Raquel Castro was selected to join Christina Aguilera‘s team on The Voice, but her big voice isn’t the only thing getting her extra attention from fans right now. Raquel was also the little girl in Ben Affleck‘s Jersey Girl!
“You were actually that little girl in that movie Jersey Girl and we all fell in love with you,” Ann Curry said on Today. “You’re from Long Island, and to have the luck of being cast so young in that movie… but, in this particular case, it was really your voice to have that luck again.”
“It’s amazing to have this experience,” Raquel said. “Christina has been my inspiration since I was such a little girl… I grew up listening to her and trying to sound like her. So for her to be able to work with me, for her to hit her button and to be on her team is absolute amazing, and I feel truly blessed.”
The Battle Rounds begin tonight on The Voice!
