If Governor Dan McKee’s mother helped him win the Democratic primary, his daughter might send him straight to the White House.

Kara McKee made her much-anticipated appearance on NBC’s “The Voice” last night, and she knocked it out of the park.

Kara performed her own version of “Woodstock” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, impressing 12-time Grammy winner John Legend. She’ll be on Team Legend moving forward.

”She took some really cool and smart liberties with the melody, and made it her own,” Legend said during the show.

Fun fact about Legend: He hearts Rhode Island, having performed at the Convention Center in Providence at a private fundraiser in 2011 held by City Year, a nonprofit that works in the city’s schools.
