Mum claims 'The Voice' smashed her window

SWSYvoice - by Olive Loveridge-GreeneA woman claims she had a lucky escape after her windows shattered after a high-pitched singer auditioning on 'The Voice Kids'.Debra Murrell, 47, claims contestant Liam Price, 12, sang at the perfect frequency needed to rattle her living room window out of the frame.She said she heard a huge creak from the window when the lad belted out Bill Wilthers' Lean on Me.But when judges asked the schoolboy to repeat an impressive mid-song high note the whole window vibrated and fell out, smashing into pieces.It shattered on top of a chair she had been sitting on moments earlier and shaken Debra said she feels lucky to escape uninjured.Objects have a resonant frequency - the natural frequency at which they vibrates.Debra said her window was lose in the frame due to wobbly beading, but stable - until the singer's voice caused it to vibrate and fall.Liam, from Solihull, West Mids., sailed through the blind audition round of ITV's The Voice Kids and has landed himself a spot in the semi-final this Saturday. Debra from St Helens, Merseyside, said: "The window fell like a guillotine. "I'm still a bit frightened.  "There's no doubt that little boy caused my window to smash."The volume on the TV was exactly the same as it had been all day. "There's no hard feelings. "He's an amazing singer. "It's just insane how his high note could break thick glass, it's beyond crazy."Debra recently moved into her new home and said she had noticed one of the beading panels on the glass of her living room window was slightly loose.But she thought nothing of it, and sat down to catch up on the TV shows she'd missed during her house move, last Monday.Liam belted out his audition and Debra said she heard "a creak coming from the window" when he hit an impressive high note which Will.i.am called "fierce".She dismissed the "creak" but as the episode drew on, McFly frontman Danny Jones asked the 12-year-old hopeful to repeat the high note.Seconds later Debra heard a second creak and instinctively jumped out of her chair, before watching the inside of her double-glazed window shatter and crash in.Debra said: "I had already caught up on Love Island and Keeping Up With the Kardashians."I was flicking through catch-up and I didn't realise The Voice Kid had started again."I love that programme so I made myself a cup of tea and watched it back to episode 1. "There was this 12-year-old boy who hit this really high pitch note. "After the boy finished his audition Will.i.am said he knew female singers who couldn't even hit that note. "One of the judges then asked the boy to sing the note again, and when he did I heard this creak from the window. "It was so loud I jumped off my chair instantly and a millisecond later the window smashed inside the living room, all over the chair I was sitting on. "Genuinely if I hadn't moved so fast I'd be dead. "It's actually mad. "The thing is what with it being a new move I was still waiting on my furniture to arrive so I was sat on my dining chairs."Thank God for cheap, hard, uncomfortable dining room chairs."  She phoned a local window company who boarded up the 3ft x 4ft window .Liam Price, from Solihull, West Mids., sailed through the blind audition round of ITV's The Voice Kids and has landed himself a spot in the semi-final this Saturday. Liam's step-dad, Adam Belcher, 37, said: "It's just absolutely bonkers."Liam is an impressive singer and seems to have blown the judges away but this is just unbelievable."ENDS
