Caity Peters, 21, a general education and teaching major, sang her way through several rounds on NBC’s “The Voice” before being voted off Wednesday, April 13.
Peters made all four judges turn their chairs during her blind audition of “Jealous” by Labrinth. She selected Grammy-award winning musician and producer Pharrell Williams, as written in his biography.
Peters has attended LBCC since 2012, but took a year off to teach music internationally. She is quoted on LBCC’s website as saying, “Having people connect through music is the coolest thing ever,” Peters said. “I taught in other countries with many different languages. The one thing that brought us together was music.”
She addressed the issue of her elimination gracefully on her Twitter feed. “This isn’t the end for me rather the start! Thank you for joining me on this journey, get ready for more,” she said. Peters told the Long Beach Press-Telegram she plans to use her current platform to pursue her singing career.
“The Voice” airs Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. on NBC channel 4.
