The hard work and preparation Brooke Angelina Bromley devoted to her open call audition for “The Voice” on Saturday, June 22, has paid off.

The 16-year-old Ludington singer and her mother, Harmony, went to Chicago expecting to just have fun and get some experience singing in front of an audience — not necessarily expecting to move beyond the first audition for the singing competition show on NBC.

However, Brooke received a call-back for the 2020 season, and she’s expecting to hear from producers soon about what will happen next.

“I’m still kind of shocked but super excited,” Brooke told the Daily News. “I’m looking forward to moving on to the next step.”

Brooke said the audition, which took place on a building in Chicago’s Navy Pier, was packed with eager young singers, and that it was a stressful but exciting process.

“There were hundreds if not thousands of people there,” she said. “We were in a really big, open building … When we got into the auditioning rooms, it was a small room, like a classroom.”

Once in the auditioning room, Brooke and several others in the group sang songs for a judge. When it was over, she said she was the only one who was asked to stay behind and sing again.
