When it came time to pick teams, Jershika picked Team Kelly.

Manny Keith sings Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart”

At 31, this Miami, Florida native has always loved music growing up with a musician father and a mother who danced. While he was introverted, at 14 he began pursuing music and dancing due to his parents’ encouragement. When his mom was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, Manny struggled to cope with the reality and has found music to be healing following her death in 2017. That healing power showed on the stage when Blake turned for the hopeful, giving him a spot on Team Blake.
