Steven Spielberg isn't the only one with great talent in the family.

The famed director's niece Jessy Katz, 25, recently auditioned for "The Voice" Israel and sang Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers." Her sultry voice rocked the house!

She made it through and is now on Aviv Geffen's team. She broke down in happy tears after the stunning performance and coach selection.

Katz revealed that she has been in Israel for the past three years after graduating from the University of Maryland, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

She addressed wanting to be her own person, not just Spielberg's niece, and that she even did this version of "The Voice" to have the coaches recognize her for her, not her famous uncle.

"It's such a letdown walking into a room and be recognized as Steven Spielberg's niece instead of Jessica Katz," she said on the show.

Check out her performance.
