Shelton on Cassadee Pope

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “She’s magic. She’s just a special artist that God gave a little extra to. I wish I could sit here and scientifically explain to y'all what it is about her, but the truth is none of us can explain it. She’s just one of those special people that is destined to be a star.” —Blake Shelton enthusing about Cassadee Pope to HollywoodReporter.com. The new Voice champ told interviewer Rebecca Ford she hopes to have her first Republic single out in January, though she acknowledged that she has no idea what the song will be. But hey, dreaming got her this far. (12/20a)
