Zoe Wees - Control


We can't get over German-born singer-songwriter Zoe Wees's raw, deeply emotional music. We were awe-struck from her very first hit, \"Control,\" and her subsequent releases have been just as spectacular. With a range that goes from raspy low to unbelievably powerful and sky high, Wees is an artist to watch right now, showing her artistic ability through both her incredible voice and handwritten lyrics. Even though her songs bring her audience in and allow them to get to know her for who she really is, like the empowering \"Girls Like Us,\" there are many details about Wees's life that would come as a surprise to many. Curious? Ahead, find nine facts about Wees that make her the artist she is today, and that lend even more significance to the tunes she pens herself.\n","id":48127211,"type":"gallery","photo_source":"","permalink":"https:\/\/www.popsugar.com\/celebrity\/who-is-zoe-wees-facts-48127211","canonical":"https:\/\/www.popsugar.com\/celebrity\/who-is-zoe-wees-facts-48127211","share_text":"Everything to Know About Zoe Wees, the German Singer Behind Megahit \"Control\"","use_tall_image":false,"omit_from_countdown":false,"caption_num":false,"slide_tags":"MusicCelebrity FactsZoe Wees","is_cover":true,"embed_html":" View this post on Instagram A post shared by ZOE WEES (@zoe.wees)\n"},"embed_html":"","embed_link":"https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/embed\/e8UZdwaVarQ","share_image":false,"title":"She Was on The Voice Kids 2017","intro_text":false,"body":"Zoe Wees's career got started when she was 15 years old, singing Jessie J's \"Get Away\" on The Voice Kids' season-three blind auditions in 2017.
