News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Weds. Mar. 11, 2015: Bahamas national Blaze Johnson, Jr. aka, ‘Little Blaze,’ last night advanced beyond the battle rounds and into lives on the NBC Reality music show, The Voice.
Johnson is the lone Caribbean national to represent the region this year and advanced with a superb rendition of Magic’s ‘Rude’ last night as part of Team Adam Levine. Johnson earned Levine’s vote to remain on the show over Michael Leier.
His presence on Team Adam comes on the heels of Season 5 winner, Tessanne Chin of Jamaica and Anita Antoinette from last Season, who was also born in Jamaica but lives in the U.S.
Johnson was uprooted from the Bahamas at the age of eight when his parents moved to the United States to provide a better life for their son. He played football in high school and was offered a scholarship, but he turned it down to pursue music. His mom told him that he was blessed with a special gift and needed to share it with the world.
