Barbadian songstress Kareen Clarke has secured a coveted opportunity to audition for Season 7 of NBC’s popular singing reality television show The Voice in New Orleans this weekend.
This multitalented songwriter, vocalist and performer has a number of accolades under her belt, including winning both the Barbados Song Festival and the Caribbean Song Festival, as well as winning the Female Gospel Artist Of The Year at the Barbados Music Awards and the Flame Gospel Music Awards.
Now, audition pass in hand, Clarke is headed to New Orleans – where amongst thousands of other hopefuls, this local performer intends to show she has what it takes to make it on the international stage.
“I am blessed –– whatever happens. I am so grateful for the support I am receiving on this journey,” says Clarke.
If Clarke is successful in making it onto The Voice, she would follow in the footsteps of Jamaica’s Tessanne Chin, the show’s Season’s 5 winner and would have a shot at becoming the second female from the Caribbean to land the coveted title of The Voice.
Barbadians can follow Clarke as she moves through the competition and lend their support via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. (PR)
