The Voice returns Monday, Feb. 26, with Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson as coaches and a new blind audition twist.
Check back then and throughout Season 14 for complete coverage on Voice Views. Meanwhile, here’s more about Terrence.
* Though based in L.A. now, Terrence spent his youth in Maryland and much of his career performing in the D.C. area.
* He grew up in a musical family. In fact, his great aunt was legendary blues guitarist and singer Etta Baker, who passed away in 2006.
* At age 3, Terrence mimicked his father by tapping out “Little Red Corvette” on piano, according to a bio on Gig Masters. And, hence, a music career was born.
* The same bio says one of Terrence’s most memorable performances was a tribute performance for comedian Dick Gregory along with Gregory’s daughter, singer Ayanna Gregory.
* In 2017, at age 36, Terrence moved to L.A. to pursue music though he had no place to stay. For two months, he lived in hotels. “I couldn’t afford to book a room more than one night at a time, so I’d stay the night, then normally go sit at a Starbucks for hours because I had no where else to go,” he writes on Facebook.
* Twice, he had to move back to D.C., but things eventually worked out in L.A. Writes Terrence in his Voice audition announcement: ” I packed a few clothes and moved to LA less than two years ago, strictly on faith: no gig, no job, no place to live; nevertheless, The Lord has met my every need and then some. If you’d only dare trust Him!!”
* Since being in L.A., he’s also become a published author. His book, “Just In Case: Embracing The Pilgrimage To Self-Awareness” is available on Amazon.
