Philly is just straight up dominating this season of NBC's "The Voice."

Delco's Audra McLaughlin became the fourth contestant from the area to make it through "The Voice's" blind audition process after singing "Angel From Montgomery" by  John Prine (although, Bonnie Raitt's version is perhaps the best known iteration of the song). McLaughlin got a four-chair turnaround from the judges Adam Levine (who turned almost immediately), Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher. It was the only unanimous turnaround of the evening. All vied for McLaughlin but, after going with her gut, she decided on Shelton who gave an impassioned speech about the song's connection his wife Miranda Lambert

McLaughlin is a graduate of Interboro High School and is a student at Delaware County Community College. 

McLaughlin joins fellow Philly contestants Lindsay Pagano and Joshua Howard, as well as Marlton's Christina Grimmie

There are two more blind audition days left for Philadelphia to add even more familiar faces. Catch "The Voice" on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
