As previously mentioned, November 13 was a big day for The Voice artists. In addition to coach Christina Aguilera releasing her new album Lotus, Team Blake’s Erin Willett released the first single off her forthcoming EP on YouTube. Check it out below:
Did you spot Team Adam’s Tony Lucca in the Kia commercial during Tuesday’s show? If you followed the URL in the promo, you’d have gotten to check out Tony’s new music video for his song “Like Love,” which appeared on his 2010 album Rendezvous with the Angels. If you missed it, click here to check out the vid on NBC.com.
And in other news, coach Cee Lo Green and Team Christina’s Chris Mann are two of the artists who will be performing in NBC’s Christmas at Rockefeller Center special this year. You’ll recall that Season 1 champ Javier Colon was part of the same show last year. It will air Wednesday, November 28 on NBC.
Christina Aguilera would be proud: two members of The Voice‘s Team Christina have collaborated on a new single. Season 3’s Lisa Scinta lends her voice to “Young & Invincible,” the first single off Moses Stone‘s forthcoming mixtape Resilient. Moses was a member of Team Christina in Season 2.
You can listen to “Young & Invincible” on SoundCloud now and check out the Aaron Conney-designed cover to the right. Resilient is scheduled to release on November 13, the same day as Aguilera’s new album, Lotus.
In addition to appearing on the single, Lisa has less than two days left on a Kickstarter project to fund her post-The Voice recording. For more information and to contribute, you can visit her Kickstarter page.
In other post-The Voice news, Team Adam’s Adanna Duru has launched her own Kickstarter effort, and Team Adam’s Pip announced recently that his EP No Formalities will no longer be released on November 13; the album is being pushed back, but we’re assured it’s for good reasons, and not anything negative affecting the album.
The Voice Season 3 live shows continue tonight at 8 PM ET/PT on NBC.
