ELIMINATED: Grace Bello
Hometown: Cibolo, TX
Resident: Lacey, WA
Grace is very proud of her Cuban and Sicilian heritage. She got into singing because her parents were always playing salsa and Italian music around the house. Destined for the limelight ever since she was 4, her mom bought her a pink velvet costume that she wore everywhere. It made her feel like a pop star, and she would perform at the store, dinners and even her friends’ houses. In high school, Grace started entering beauty pageants because she liked the fancy dresses and getting all dolled up. These pageants helped her grow into the performer she is today and allowed her to feel comfortable speaking in front of people.

Despite the difficulties they encountered as a family, her mother overcame alcoholism, and Sydney credits both of her parents for giving her the push to follow her passion in music.

Since graduating high school, Zach has been going to community college. When he’s not at school, he performs a couple times a month at local restaurants, but he hasn’t found his footing yet.

ELIMINATED: Constance Howard
Hometown: Katy, TX
Resident: Katy, TX
Constance was a notoriously shy kid, but all that changed when her eighth-grade choir teacher discovered that she could hit notes in the C range. Constance’s biggest supporter, her grandfather Cornell, was always the one encouraging her to keep pursuing music. Two years ago, he passed away from diabetes and congestive heart failure. She’s now lucky to have another huge supporter in her life, her husband Isaiah. They spent a lot of time apart early on in their relationship. Just two weeks after they met, he went away to Army training and then was stationed in New York, followed by Afghanistan. Although they are professionally polar opposites, they support one another unconditionally.

Hometown: Chester, PA
Resident: Chester, PA
Chello is a multi-instrumentalist and has been singing for as long as he can remember. Being an only child, Chello considers his friends as family. His mom became a single parent when he was 3, which led him to grow very close to his grandma while his mother worked long hours. She introduced Chello to her church, where he began leading worship. At 15, he started playing guitar and also picked up several other instruments, such as drums, piano and bass. Chello soon became extremely interested in music software and started creating and producing his own music. He has been performing online via livestreams and working on his own songs. Chello now works for the New York State Coronavirus Hotline, but dreams of being a working musician.
ELIMINATED: Jaeden Luke — STOLEN FROM TEAM BLAKE
Hometown: Bothell, WA
Resident: Bothell, WA
Having grown up in Bothell (30 minutes from Seattle), Jaeden plays multiple gigs a week at one of the hundreds of wineries near his hometown. Playing guitar and writing songs at just 9, Jaeden wrote a song for a man that went to his family’s church who was dying of cancer. Jaeden sang the song at his funeral and knew he wanted to stay on a path that allowed him to help others with his gift. Several years ago, he wrote a song called “Beautiful.” The song was later recognized by the National Eating Disorders Association in its official outreach series. Jaeden loves that he can use music to bring good to the world, and he hopes he can achieve more of that on “The Voice” stage.

Resident: San Tan Valley, AZ
At 13 years old, Reina Ley is one of the youngest artists in the competition. Reina’s father is from Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, and her Mexican heritage plays a big role in her life. On stage, she loves to wear colorful traditional dresses to help keep her performances true to her culture. She also loves connecting to the history of Mexico through mariachi music. While she loves singing in Spanish, country music is a big part of her life growing up in Arizona. On one occasion, Reina sang a mariachi song called “Cielito Lindo” at a church talent show. This taught her that despite being nervous, through singing she gained a sense of confidence like she hadn’t felt before.

His great-grandfather was the village chief in their home in Nigeria. Andrew is now following in his mother’s footsteps by studying to become a doctor. He just completed his pre-med biology degree and got accepted into four medical schools, three of which offered him full scholarships.
