LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln schoolteacher has advanced to the next round on the “The Voice,” NBC’s singing contest.

On Monday night Hannah Huston (HYOO’-stuhn) was wildly praised by the celebrity coaches for her rendition of a 1964 rock classic, “House of the Rising Sun.” On the show, celebrity coaches aid the competing singers as they vie for a recording contract.

The 24-year-old teaches at Arnold Elementary School in Lincoln, but she’s on a leave to participate in the show. The district says a TV crew was in Lincoln in November to record Huston with her class.

Huston graduated from Grand Island Senior High School in 2009 and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2013.
