The sibling trio, comprised of  Caleb, Joshua and Bekah Liechty, was crowned the winner of The Voice in December of 2021. 

Throughout the season, Girl Named Tom covered songs by Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Glen Campbell, Ingrid Andress, and Coldplay (just to name a few). They won over the hearts of millions as a member of Kelly Clarkson’s Team Kelly and made history as the first-ever trio to make it to The Voice finale and win the competition.
