Jenkins advances on NBC’s “The Voice”

May 6, 2011

IOTA PHI (Belmont) — Jeff Jenkins, Belmont ’08, made it onto the NBC show “The Voice.” Jenkins is a communication studies major with a music business minor. His audition song, “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascall Flatts has broken into the top 200 singles on iTunes.

Hosted by Carson Daly, “The Voice” features four celebrity coaches: Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Each coach chooses eight singers to mentor during the blind auditions, where the judges cannot see the contestants. If a judge likes the contestant’s voice, he or she pushes a button to select the singer. If more than one coach presses the button, the contestant gets to choose their mentor.

From the start of his first note, it took less than 12 seconds before Jenkins had the attention of two coaches. Before then end of his final note, Jenkins had gained the attention of all four coaches, and subsequently selected to work with Maroon 5’s Adam Levine.
