Parajita explains that she’d like to to incorporate her Nepalese heritage into her singing and music. But her favorite genre is R&B and soul. “The best artists are able to bring the music of their culture and their roots into the wider global landscape of music,” says John Legend, who reminds everyone that he turned his chair first. “I think your voice is that kind of transcendent voice.”
Blake Shelton admits “I know good and well that I’m in over my head here,” adding, “But it doesn’t mean that I’m also not as big a big fan of yours as everyone else here.” He teases that there is nobody else like her on his team. He jokes, “I have also been on a singing competition show,” which cracks Camila up. “Have you been in a girl group too?”
Before Parijita chooses her team, she gifts each coach with a string of rudraksha beads from Nepal.
