Myrtle Beach's Jimmy Mowery and Conway's Cecily Hennigan appear on The Voice

MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are known for feuding and disagreeing on NBC’s “The Voice.” But there’s no way those two can disagree, the members of their teams from the Grand Strand put on quite a show for a packed Bubba’s Love Shak Friday night.

Cecily Hennigan, 16, was in the crowd watching Jimmy Mowery, 31, perform wearing her “Team Blake” jacket. Adoring fans recognized her from the show and asked her for pictures. Hennigan looked right at home in the spotlight.

The Conway High School student picked up the guitar, and the pair ended up performing two songs together: Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” and “Closer” by the Chainsmokers.

Watch the full performance of “Shallow” here:

Hennigan, of Conway, appeared on Monday’s episode and wowed the judges with her performance of Jewel’s “Foolish Games.”

Though Shelton was the only judge to turn around, John Legend told Hennigan her voice was developed beyond her years, Levine said she was awesome and Kelly Clarkson said her song choice was rad.

This isn’t the first time Hennigan has found herself in the spotlight. In August, she belted out her order at a McDonald’s drive-thru while her friend provided a beat. It was all caught on camera and currently has over two million views on Facebook.

The viral video garnered national attention including an appearance on The Steve Harvey Show and a feature as Hoda Kotb’s “Morning Boost” on the TODAY Show. Kotb featured Hennigan again this week after she landed a spot on Team Blake.

Jimmy Mowery, 31, appeared earlier in the season, earning chair turns from both Levine and John Legend for his performance of “Attention” by Charlie Puth.

The coaches criticized Mowery’s “head voice” during the audition, but Levine said that, at his best, Mowery is “unstoppable” and has a “phenomenal voice.”

Mowery currently lives in Myrtle Beach, but was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania. He performs across the Grand Strand.

WMBF News reporter Amy Kawata caught up with Mowery before his March 8 performance in North Myrtle Beach. You can watch that interview here.
