News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Tues. Nov. 4, 2014: Jamaican-born, New Britain, Connecticut-based singer, Anita Antoinette has advanced to the live rounds of the NBC music reality show, “The Voice.”

She worked the stage like a pro, combining sexy and sultry moves reminiscent of a classy dancehall queen meet deejay working the stage “back a yard.”
“Anita you have come out of your shell,” said Coach Adam Levine, the winner of last year’s competition with Jamaican Tessanne Chin.
“You kept jabbing with these unexpected, super confident notes,” said Coach Pharrell Williams.
“You are incredible,” added Coach Stefanie. “You have come so far it’s shocking.”
“Wow! I was not expecting that,” Antoinette gushed after Stefani announced her as the victor. “I am so happy. I’m going to the live playoffs, baby! Yes!”
