The Voice star still recovering – 10 months after breaking several bones in nasty stage fall

The Voice star Wendy Moten is “in disbelief” after still being in recovery from a fall that left her with several broken bones 10 months ago.

The 56 year old was part of judge Blake Shelton’s team on season 21 and had been performing onstage on the show when she suffered the nasty fall.

Wendy ended up breaking her right elbow and fracturing her left wrist and part of a small bone in her left hand, leaving her unable to use her arms in the weeks following the incident.

The Memphis native, who grew up in the church choir, went on to continue The Voice competition up until the finale on 16 December — where she came in at an impressive second place.

Following the finale, Wendy returned to her home state to have surgery on her injuries and has been in a prolonged process of rehabilitation ever since.

Wendy opened up about her rehabilitation, which includes physical therapy, to People, as she said: “I've never been broken before, and so, it's a new experience, but I remind myself that there are people dealing with far more serious things.

“I'll be OK. I'll just keep working at it.”

Wendy shared that doctors had to insert a piece of titanium in her elbow in order to keep her arm in place.


She explained: “Right now, my elbow is still crooked, and my fingers are crooked, but with the occupational therapy and the physical therapy I'm currently undergoing, I'm hoping everything gets back to normal soon.”

Though Wendy admitted she is in a lot of pain, she hasn’t let this prevent her from moving forward in her career after gaining huge opportunities from being on The Voice.

The vocalist is currently on tour with US country sensation Vince Gill, whom she met in 2016.

Wendy shares a history with the singer, as the pair became bandmates when they both joined Western swing band The Time Jumpers.

Wendy has been posting her time on the road with Vince on Instagram, sharing her experience with fans.

She recently uploaded a video of herself receiving a standing applause from a happy audience, as she captioned: “Last night at @THERYMAN and ANOTHER STANDING OVATION?!? WHAT!!! THANK YOU NASHVILLE.

“The final night of @vincegillofficial's 4 night Ryman residency is TONIGHT! I CANT WAIT!!”

Wendy shows no signs of slowing down while being in recovery as she is linked to a new project with producer Paul Worley, who has worked with Lady Antebellum and the Dixie Chicks.
