Just days after undergoing an extensive surgery to repair injuries she sustained during a scary fall on NBC’s The Voice, Team Blake’s Wendy Moten returned to social media to tease what sounds like a collaboration with Blake Shelton.
The Voice runner-up offered fans a quick update on her surgery and then gave her coach a shout-out in her latest Instagram post.
“Counting the days until I have fully recovered from my elbow surgery so I can get back to work finishing recording my new music and performing live,” Moten, who went under the knife at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center on Friday, wrote.
Promising to keep her fans in the loop, Moten went on to tease something very exciting that might be coming down the pipeline.
“I’ll most definitely keep you all posted and I hope there’s something in the works with @blakeshelton too,” she shared, adding, “Fingers crossed 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽!!!”
Prior to her surgery, Moten opened up about her condition, telling People, “My elbow is jacked up. It’s shattered. It’s no good. I have to have surgery to put metal plates and bolts and things. So I’m amazed that I was able to still keep going with that knowledge.”

Moten sustained the injuries to her elbow when she fell over an on-stage speaker during the Nov. 23 live show. She ended up having to wear two casts on her arms as she sustained a broken right elbow and fractured left hand.
According to Moten, the recovery “may take two or three months.”
After joining Team Blake, Moten made history as the oldest contestant to make it this far in the competition at 57 years old.
Throughout the season, the former background singer covered artists such as The Beatles, Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston.
During the finale, Moten placed second and Team Kelly’s Girl Named Tom was crowned winner of the competition.
Before surgery, she promised fans not to let it put her on the sidelines.
“Once I get this surgery under wraps and I get through my recovery…then I am going to put some things together and get some shows going. Record some more music,” she revealed.
Fans can follow Moten’s recovery process on Instagram where she plans to stay connected with fans as she heals.
