Westport knew her as Ali Porter.
Movie-goers knew her as Curly Sue.
Now the nation knows Alisan Porter as the newest victor on “The Voice.”
The former Staples High School Players actor/singer stood tall last night. She won the NBC show’s 10th season in convincing fashion. Her heartfelt duet with Jennifer Nettles of “Unlove You” capped a run to the title that included an astonishing, judges-head-turning blind audition rendition of “Blue Bayou,” followed by fantastic covers of artists like Janis Joplin, Aerosmith and Demi Lovato.
Congratulations, Ali — er, Alisan. You’ve done us all proud.
And we can’t wait to hear you at your welcome-home concert here!
