The Voice allows us to connect with our coaches via e-mail, so I told her thank you, and that I’d become more of a fan of her because of getting to know her off stage. Not that I wasn’t a fan before in her vocal ability, but who she is as a mother and as a caretaker of our team. She’s really been interested. She e-mailed me after my blind audition and said “Aw you killed it! Good job, keep it up!” That kind of stuff, she doesn’t have to do that stuff, she could be like “okay great, cameras are off, I’m out!” but she’s not that. She’s been great, I’m a supporter of who she is, and I don’t mean who we know her to be; the lights, and smoke, and stage presence, I mean who she is when all that’s turned off. I’m really a fan of that Christina.
What are you doing right now outside of the show?
Well, the label that I was with prior to going to The Voice is putting out my album Home. That’s exciting, that’s the great thing about The Voice too is they don’t lock you down where you can’t do shows on breaks. They do not want to take away from your career, they don’t want to lock you down and say “after this show’s over for a year you can’t do anything.” It’s very much like “hey! Go! Sing! Enjoy yourself!” So that’s been really cool too, I’m excited to be able to keep what I do, to keep that going, and at the same time be involved with something so huge like America’s number 1 competition show. It’s crazy. CLICK to Continue to:Learning From the Sing-Off with Shawn Stockman
