But she still calls it “one of the proudest moments of my life” in a tweet to fans.
“i might have not won, but I did give my all on that stage,” she tells her fans. “I did lose all control and let my emotions carry the song, but wouldn’t change a thing….. I wouldn’t have been me If I was in control
“Like they said, I am a firecracker.”
And one whose musical ambitions have been anything but dampened by her experience on The Voice.
Genesis, from Miami, Fla., was 19 when she auditioned and won a spot on Team Adam Levine with her cover of Kesha’s “Praying.” Here’s what she told Voice Views about her time on the show and her plans moving forward.
Voice Views: I know the battles were filmed a while back. What have you been doing musically since then?
Genesis: For the time being I’ve gone back to working on new content to release. Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll have something fun for everyone to listen to.
Voice Views: Where do you see your time on the show leading you musically? At one point, you were working with a small record label in Florida. Do you envision releasing more music anytime soon and, if so, what can you tell me about that?
Genesis: “My short time on The Voice led my to lots of exposure and a growing fan base, which is so amazing. I envision new music being released this year. It’s very exciting and I can’t wait for everyone to explore what else I have to offer through my music. This year will be a great one!
Voice Views: Do you think you grew as an artist as a result of The Voice experience? If so, in what way?
Genesis: I definitely grew as an artist. I feel like I know myself better. I know what’s my sound now. I mastered my style and what I want to portray to everyone, I want to be myself. I thought I had to change who I was before The Voice. Now I know that it’s okay to be yourself and you have to believe 100 percent in who you are.
Voice Views: Other than the new friends you made, what do you think you’ll remember most about the experience?
Genesis: I’ll definitely remember how much growth I made in the experience more than anything. Personally, I had never been away from my mom doing music; she’s always been my right hand. For The Voice, I had to do this absolutely alone. Of course, I’d talk to her everyday through the phone, but I didn’t physically have her there, and that was hard. But I definitely grew to be more independent and believe in myself so much more.
