(WMC-TV) - A Memphis contestant remains in the Top Eight on a national television broadcast, "The Voice". Sarah Simmons will be performing for an extra special audience Monday night.

A little girl, also named Sarah Simmons, battling leukemia looks to the older Sarah Simmons for support.

The little girl lives in the Los Angeles area. She watches the older Sarah sing week after week on "The Voice". Her voice has brought lots of fun and encouragement.

When Sarah Simmons heard about the younger Sarah, she got her hands on two hard-to-secure tickets. That way the little girl and her mother could sit next to older Sarah's family in the audience.

Voting starts as soon as the show goes off air Monday, and until 9 a.m.
