So I took a break from blogging while I was busy with election things. Now that the election is over and I’m finally recouped I think it’s time to pick this back up again.
I have only watched The Voice in past seasons a few episodes here and there. I’ve liked it, but just had a hard time keeping up with it when it’s typically on a total of 3 hours a week. Well this season is different because a very talented young lady from my hometown, Sylvia Yacoub, has made it all the way through and now is in the top 10 finalists. I do not know her personally, but I have been to a few performances at my high school alma mater where she has had solos and have found her to be phenomenal. She played the part of Audrey II in the musical Little Shop of Horrors and I remember thinking then, “this girl needs someone to discover her.” Sylvia sounded better than most of the people currently on the radio. The fact that she’s gorgeous doesn’t hurt either.
Week after week I have tuned in to The Voice along with the rest of Muskegon, MI to see what Sylvia’s going to sing next and if she will make it through to the next round. On American Idol, they tend to show the hometowns a lot from where the contestants are from. I have always loved how the communities rally around this new star and how proud they are of them. Well on the Voice they don’t seem to show that on camera as much, but that doesn’t take away the fact that we are all proud to have someone as talented as Sylvia be from our hometown! Even if she didn’t have the connection to Muskegon, MI, she would be my favorite finalist this season. She has the most talent and range out of everyone. Can’t wait to see what she will sing next!
So tune in each week to NBC’s The Voice and vote for Sylvia by texting, calling, voting online, and buying that week’s song on itunes! We are so proud of you, Sylvia!!
