After just completed its first season, The new hit TV show The Voice is going on the road. Newly crowned Javier Colon leads the group with support from fellow finalists, but is the main attraction semi finalist and and Broadway Star Frenchie Davis? Read on for more about the tour and the Californian songstress.
32 year old powerhouse and recent The Voice star Frenchie is no stranger to the stage. After appearing in Rent in 2003 she later toured with two productions. In 2004 Frenchie went on tour with the hit musical DreamGirls, followed by a stint in the traveling production of Ain’t Misbehavin’ in 2008. For the musical recording of Ain’t Misbehavin’ she received a Grammy nomination.
Frenchie’s career originally got a bump when she appeared in the second season of American Idol and famously got kicked off when risque topless pictures surfaced that she had taken four years prior. Rather than ruining her, it seems it gave her career the head start she needed and since then has had a wide spanning stage career. The Voice however gave her a second chance at getting a crown on a televised talent show.
