Alana Norris of Martinsburg will be auditioning for "The Voice," a singing competition television series broadcast on NBC, on Saturday, Feb. 15 in Baltimore, Md.

The 18 year old and her mother, Melissa Norris, will travel to Baltimore Friday evening to make it to the early morning open auditions.

"I'm not sure if it will be just me or a whole group of people in that time slot," Norris said.

Melissa posts videos to Facebook of her daughter singing which receive praise and positive feedback.

Alana sings mostly pop and country-style songs but will sing anything she likes. With a Karaoke machine at home, she can sing whenever she is in the mood. Sometimes she sings with friends and sometimes she sings alone.

For the audition, Alana will be singing Carrie Underwood's "Cry Pretty." She is required to sing a capella, which means she will have no instrumental back up.

During the open audition, it is possible to receive a "red card" which means an automatic callback. All is not lost if no red card is received. Contestants can receive notice of a callback within one to three days of the audition.

Alana said that her mother will make sure she will be there if she does get a call-back.

She will not be singing for the on-screen celebrity coaches.
