Tyler (KETK) — A Tyler-area native made his musical debut on NBC's hit show "The Voice" Tuesday night. The musician impressed the judges-- or at least one -- enough to make it to the next round.
Stevie Jo Rosenbalm, of Chapel Hill, made the bold choice of singing Voice judge Usher's hit single "There Goes My Baby." It was impressive enough for Usher to hit the red button and advance him into stage two, the battle round.
The moment Usher's chair turned, the singer's mom was ecstatic, and apparently so was the pop megastar to have a Texan.
"I didn't want to react because I knew this guy (blake Shelton) had any indication of what I was looking at he would have his hit his button. He didn't and I got myself a Texan!" said Usher.
"You can watch more of The Voice, and now, East Texas own on KETK weekdays at 7 p.m. Rosenbalm's next performance will not be until judges finish picking their team members during the blind auditions.
Viewers can cheer on their favorite artist or talent performing, but KETK will be rooting for their own, Stevie Jo Rosenbalm, along with Team Usher.
