Who is A Girl Named Tom Band from The Voice Season 21?
So, if you're puzzled why their group is called Girl Named Tom when there isn't even a Tom in it, there's a wonderful backstory behind it. The band's title was inspired by the fact that Bekah's older siblings used to refer to her as Tom when she was a kid.
The band was created in the spring of 2019 and has since played 67 performances all across the country while traveling in a mini-van!
Goshen College was a success for Caleb and Joshua, who both graduated with honors. The brothers disclosed that when she was a kid, their little sister sang everywhere she went, as per the campus newsletter. Caleb also mentioned that the birth of their band was inspired by Holly, Caleb's mother.

Kelly Clarkson was the first judge to turn her chair and press the much-desired buzzer, followed by John Lennon and Ariana Grande, and then Blake Shelton. The country singer stated that he had been waiting to press his button for a solo from one of the members before he eventually turned around.
Both Grande and Lennon wanted to see them sing a pop song, while Kelly sold herself by saying she was the first one to notice them and adored their calming voices right away.
It's safe to say Girl Named Tom was confronted with a difficult decision. They finally made up their minds on Team Kelly after some deliberation! Fans, as expected, were ecstatic about the band's choice of coach on Twitter.
