I have always greatly admired the NBC television show, The Voice. It is such a simple but amazing concept that amateur singers audition for judges who are successful musical artists, with the judges’ chairs turned so they cannot see the performer, i.e. the performance is totally judged on the singer’s voice.
The show is a testament to acceptance and diversity.
In dark and troubled times such as these, it is often art that helps us. I was deeply moved by Billy Gilman’s performance of the Martina McBride song, “Anyway” last night.
