Yes we are late but better late than never!!
We actually have been keeping tweeting and keeping tabs on the beautiful dreadlocked Jamaican singer Anita Antoniette on The Voice but didn’t actually check her out on the number 1 TV talent show in the US until last week.
Anita is the daughter of reggae musician Clinton Fearon and grew up dancing to the rhythm of her father’s songs in Kingston, Jamaica. She came to the United States in 1996, where she settled first in South Boston and then New Britain, Connecticut with her mother, brothers, and sister. A self-taught singer and guitarist, Anita began writing her own music as a teenager, inspired both by her father and by other legends such as Bob Marley, India.Arie and Erykah Badu. She graduated from the prestigious Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts in 2008, and was accepted to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where she earned a Bachelors Degree in Professional Music: Concentration in Music Business and Songwriter
This is Anita’s second time on The Voice but this time she caught all judges attention in her blind audition from singing the classic Bob Marley Turn Your Lights Down Low. In the end she went with Team Gwen Stefani.
The following week Anita stuck to her reggae style by singing the summer hit Rude by Canadian band Magic and won that round.
This week most Jamaicans abroad and a yard got wind of her and voted and bought her next song she performed All About That Bass by Meghan Trainer which cleared Anita to the Top 12!
So If you don’t know now you know Watch The Voice tonight!! spread the word so we can get another Jamaican on the road to win. Come on #TeamJamaica we can do it!
