There are very few shows that I watch on TV. And not many of those do I watch on a regular basis. But I have never missed an episode of The Voice in the 8 seasons it has been on. Many time my favorite win; many times they don't. This season I have several that I really like that would make me happy if any of them win. But the one I really, really would like to see win is this young farm boy who is just 16 years old. Last night was probably one of the best performances I have seen of his. It's getting down to the wire so I was especially happy to hear his name called as one that was moving on. His style is a little different than what I normally like, but he just has something special.
A young girl at our church has a beautiful voice and has been singing at church since she was about 8 or 9. This is a video of her singing the National Anthem at a local minor league team game 2 years ago. She is graduating high school this year and travels to various singing competitions and has won many, many awards. She just cut her first single at a recording studio. It is called Dishes and is available on iTunes. I am really impressed with how good she has gotten.
I would love to see both of the above young people go far in their careers.
