"I am so proud of being part of the show from the beginning, all the work weíve done, and proud of what the show stands for as a whole. As I have expressed since day one of the show, that I am a singer and performer first and I am so excited to get back to that love. Since this year NBC and The Voice have decided to tape back-to-back seasons, requiring a full-year commitment, it is important for me to take season four off, allowing me to support my music that my fans have been waiting for ó with the release of my new album Lotus on November 13. By pursuing my first passion of music during the break, I am also able to come back and offer even more to my team on The Voice in the future."
You know, thatís funny that you mention that. This person was just brought to my attention not too long ago. Iím not quite sure who this person is, to be honest. I donít know if it is a man or a woman. I just wasnít sure. I really donít spend any time on the Internet, so I guess I live a little under a rock in that respect.
