17-year-old Abby Cates is living out her dream as a contestant on Season 15 of NBC’s “The Voice.” Before her appearance in the popular singing competition, Abby performed in more than 25 musicals in her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio and posted her singing videos on her Instagram. Abby has been singing since age five and considers it to be her true passion.
“This is the most important thing that I’ve done in my entire life,” she told “The Voice” host Carson Daly about her appearance on the show. “I’m really excited because this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Thanks to online learning at Ohio Virtual Academy (OHVA), Abby can fit study time and coursework between performances and practices. And as a member of Kelly Clarkson’s team on the hit NBC show, Abby is showcasing her talent to the world under the guidance of one of her favorite role models. Tonight, Abby will make her official debut on “Team Kelly,” when she performs during this season’s first live shows.
Best of luck, Abby! Your K12 family is cheering you on!
