3 PM – 4 PM Ria from NBC’s The Voice! Nineteen year old Pop/R&B phenom, Ria, is one of the brightest up and coming young talents on the music landscape. Being chosen by both Blake Shelton and Shakira on Season 6 of NBC's "The Voice" she got both superstars to fight over her for their teams.
This new, young artist is truly unparalleled in the music world. Through the shear majestic power of her own voice, has transcended the myriad bargain bin pop-punk princesses into a profound creative force. Her voice not only refines the word “power” in power-pop in her more upbeat tracks, but can flawlessly transform itself, becoming heartbreaking, delicate and haunting. The emotions and experience she evokes are made all the more impressive when one discovers that her artistic potential has not yet peaked at a tender 19. Ria is an artist whose fresh new style of classic rock and roll has just begun to shake the music landscape. You have been warned. —
With a deep passion for music and her undeniable talents Ria is well on her way to stake her claim as the next pop music teen queen. For more log onto www.facebook.com/ria.eaton
