Christina Aguilera is putting that voice to good use.

The Grammy winner has just been named as a musician coach on NBC’s new musical competition series The Voice, which premiers April 26.

“I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful project that celebrates music and the talent behind it,” Aguilera, who joins coaches Cee Lo Green and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, said of the role. “To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms.”
