The singer grew up in Paxton, Illinois, and later moved to Sacramento, California, to pursue a career in music.
Miles — who released her first EP, Who Are You, in 2022 — quickly caught the judges' attention during her battle round performance of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love."
On Monday night, ahead of the finale, Miles told PEOPLE she wanted to make the best of her experience during the last show.
“I’m going to live it up no matter what happens because to me it’s not about winning it’s just about the experience as it’s come along,” she said at the time. “For me, I never thought I would make it this far but I did.”
She added. “I want to be living my best life.”
To celebrate Blake Shelton's final season, several familiar faces returned to the show, including Camila Cabello, Jennifer Hudson, Nick Jonas, John Legend and Adam Levine, who all previously coached alongside Shelton on The Voice.
