Carver High School senior Amber Scott is living a dream.
Amber has advanced to the blind auditions of NBC’s “The Voice” and will be one of many singers from across the country who will compete for one of the coaches’ spots that will be up for grabs when the blind auditions air Sept. 23-24 on NBC (locally on Channel 2).
“The Voice” is a vocal competition entering its fifth season. Celebrity coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Ceelo Green and Christina Aguilera will each select singers from the blind auditions to comprise their respective teams. The coaches hear the artists perform, but they do not see them. If the coaches are impressed by the artist’s voice, they push a button to select the artist for his/her team.
“The Voice” features four stages of competition: The first begins with the blind auditions, then the battle rounds, the knockouts and finally, the live performance shows.
Amber is a singer from the Houston area who has advanced to the blind auditions.
She is excited about her opportunity to perform for such accomplished artists.
“There were many of us who auditioned in Houston,” she said. “I just remember standing in a long line and it was cold, but it was worth it.
“It’s an exciting time. I’m really looking forward to the blind auditions and I’m just hoping to do my best.”
Amber will receive plenty of support from her classmates and the Carver High staff, said Principal Rosalyn Sweat.
“We’ll all be with her during this journey,” Sweat said. “We are so excited and proud of her. We know she will represent Carver High very well.”
Performing before a live audience is old hat to Amber. She has been in numerous stage productions during her four years at Carver as part of the school’s choir/theater arts program.
Roshunda Jones, Carver’s theater arts program director, said she is also looking forward to watching her star pupil take her shot at landing one of the coveted coaches’ spots.
“I am so proud of her. We all are,” Jones said. “I think she is talented beyond her years.”
