Jacqui Lee – Season 5
New Jersey native Jacquie began her singing career in the fourth grade by singing to her family from inside a closet because she was too nervous to perform in person. Since finishing second on The Voice, Jacquie has been juggling writing music for an album she hopes to record soon, preparing for some live performances and attending high school. (She is only 16.) Follow Jacquie on Twitter at @jacquieleemusic.
Tessanne Chin -Season 5
Growing up in Jamaica with musical parents, Tessanne knew she always wanted to be a musician. For three years, she sang backup for reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, but eventually broke out as a solo artist in Jamaica. Since winning The Voice in December, Tessanne has been hard at work writing and recording her major-label debut, to be released later this spring on Universal’s Republic Records. Follow Tessanne on Twitter at @Tessanne.
Jake Barker – Season 6
Jake was primarily focused on athletics until he posted a video of himself singing on YouTube. It got a huge response, and he has been at it ever since. His audition of “When I Was Your Man” turned three coaches; Jake chose Usher. He was stolen by Adam in the battle rounds and made it deep into the season before being eliminated in the final playoff round. Follow Jake on Twitter at @IamJakeBarker.
Kristen Merlin – Season 6
From the first notes of her audition song, “Something More,” Kristen set out to prove she’s a unique talent. Under Shakira’s guidance, she’s impressed audiences week after week. As one who’s faced ridicule for her tomboy appearance, Kristen wants to use her passion and The Voice stage to represent others who may be judged by how they look and not for who they are. Kristen’s on Twitter at @kristenmerlin.
Christina Grimmie – Season 6
Christina started her career on YouTube and now counts more than two and a half million subscribers. Her online popularity landed her an opening spot on the Selena Gomez tour, but she has yet to land a record deal. After her “Wrecking Ball” turned all four coaches in her blind audition, she battled her way deep into the competition. Follow Christina on Twitter at @TheRealGrimmie.
A true country kid who loves fishing, mudding and four-wheeling in his free time, Jake discovered his passion for music after a football injury sidelined him. After failing to land on a team at his Season 5 audition, Jake came back strong. His “Don’t Close Your Eyes” connected him to three-time winner Blake Shelton; the two have never looked back. Follow Jake on Twitter at @jimmydw96.
Josh Kaufman – Season 6
A four-chair turnaround artist originally on Team Adam, Josh was stolen by Usher after Adam picked Delvin Choice to move on to the playoffs. He’s never looked back. A singer his entire life, Josh supports his wife and three kids by playing local gigs and working as an SAT prep tutor. He hopes The Voice will allow him be a full-time musician to support his family. Follow Josh on Twitter at @IAmJoshKaufman.
