Sikeston native secures spot on NBC's 'The Voice'
SIKESTON -- During Monday night's episode on Season 13 of NBC's "The Voice," Sikeston native Anna Catherine DeHart Nashville, Tenn., made it through the third round of blind auditions and secured a spot on Team Blake by singing "I Could Use a Love Song."
At 11 years old, DeHart, now 23, started singing in school talent shows and doing "Live Wires" community theater, which helped break her out of her shell. In high school, she was in a band called Dirt Road and would play little country rock fests. After high school, she moved to Nashville to study music business at Belmont University.
During her junior year, she got the chance to open for Kenny Rogers at the Kenny Rogers Children's Center Telethon, which focused on improving the lives of children with special needs.
Since then, Dehart has continued to donate her time to Children's Center, playing music for the children in attendance. She graduated last May.
Look for an interview with DeHart in an upcoming edition of the Standard Democrat. "The Voice" airs at 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
