Sylvia Yacoub from "The Voice" is one of top 12 contestants in Season 3 of the NBC reality singing competition series. She is a 19-year-old singer who is originally from Alexandria, Egypt, but is currently living in Muskegon, Michigan. She is on Christina Aguilera's team.

Sylvia Yacoub ("The Voice") sang "Only Girl (In the World)" by Rihanna for her blind audition. Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton all turned their chairs around, but Yacoub chose Aguilera to be her coach.

This Egyptian native first came to the U.S. at age 5 and credits her mother for teaching her how to sing: a passion denied to her mom while living in the Middle East. Sylvia has found the perfect coach in Christina as she counts the songstress among her biggest influences. A political science and philosophy double major, Sylvia hopes "The Voice" will be her ticket to dreams she has always wanted to achieve.
