Cincinnati teen stuns Kelly Clarkson on 'The Voice,' becomes second from area on show

Another local artist just made it big on a national stage. Cincinnati native Abby Cates says she's always been a singer.

"I would wake up singing instead of crying, just stuff like that. I literally sang from birth," said Cates.

As she got older, she started experimenting with songwriting and taking her talents to social media. The 17-year-old has amassed nearly 180,000 Instagram followers.
