The popular NBC show, The Voice, kicked off its 6th season this week. The show continues to produce extraordinary talent each season. Country Music Chat sat down to learn a few facts about last seasons favorite, Brandon Chase. Brandon has a miraculous story, unmatched ambition, and a new single heading to radio March 4.
This singing gig almost didn’t happen.
Chalk it up to destiny but in his early years Brandon did almost everything to avoid the stage. His confidence came from sports, not music. He tried out for every school play and was never picked. When the church held singing tryouts he decided to audition. Nervous, he let every single person go ahead of him. When there was no one left, Brandon stepped up to the stage and sang the song they had just heard. The reaction from the judges was life changing and a path to a musical career was born that day.
Brandon auditioned for the show with a powerful rendition of “Wanted” and moments later joined #teamblake. He worked along side Blake Shelton and Cher. Brandon loved watching the dynamic between the two megastars as they poked at each other in good fun but what he learned was more memorable. They taught him to be present in that moment, literally living the song and selling the performance. Most of all they taught him to hear things in new ways.
Brandon graduated high school at 15 years old and college at 17 years old. He wanted a jump start on his music career but it was important to get an education first.
All the graphics and artwork for his promotional material are designed completely by him.
Paid his dues…
Brandon Chase didn’t just walk off the stage of The Voice and expect a record deal to be handed him in a neat little package. He has spent years paying his dues and building his brand. He has a high work ethic and is grateful for every door that has been opened thus far.
Brandon is quite literally a miracle. He stopped breathing 64 times the day after birth. Although he lived he was supposed to be severely physically and mentally disabled.
Brandon believes that he went through all of that for a purpose. Through his life experience he can teach people that nothing is impossible. This powerful fact empowers and drives him.
Look for his debut single “One” to be released to radio in March 4. Brandon will be debuting the song on Good Morning Texas on Tuesday.
Watch Brandon perform BMI Song of the Year, “Wanted” written by Hunter Hayes and Troy Verges.
