Having shared the same journey while competing on the show, each of the top eight finalists have bonded through this once in a lifetime experience and know it’s equally important to share each other’s company as it is rehearsing.
One of the wild childs of the group, Vicci Martinez is hard at work with tour rehearsal and recording new material for her upcoming album (hopefully due in October), but this party girl knows when it’s time to cut loose. Looking forward to performing live just as much as the VIP after parties that are in store, Vicci has no trouble taking full advantage of this experience.
Having represented her Mexican heritage to the fullest, Vicci muses about the night before and getting a little tipsy with a bottle of Tequilla, tells us, “it’s really important to take time and enjoy the company you’re with, and let loose!”
Vicci’s partner in crime and life of the party on the Voice Live Tour, is the raucous, fearless rocker Beverly McClellan, who’s enjoying her new status in the spotlight. Though she’s been performing in front of audiences for over 20 years, it’s only until her appearance in the top four finalists that “people recognize [her] a lot more.”
Always catching you off guard, Bev’s energetic, charismatic personality and laid back country vibe is easy to relate to and is definitely fun for everyone in her presence. Now fans have a chance to see her at her best live on stage, which she assures is completely different from the TV show.

“It’s gonna be personal,” she told us. “Now ya’ll get to see what I’ve been doing for 20 years. It’s live, ya’ll!”
It’s not just fans of the show who find Bev’s outgoing personality addicting, fellow tour members look forward to collaborating with Bev, as well as other members, during their time on tour. The big, boisterous voice of the group, Nakia, can’t wait for their duet of “Beautiful” during the concert, saying “that for me will be the highlight of the tour…I’ve been dying to sing with her.”
The collaborative efforts between the cast is apparent during their live tour, with plenty of duets in the show as wells as members making plans to work on material together in the future. There’s no doubt this solid group has each other’s back through the show and beyond, which translates into a phenomenal on stage performance for fans to enjoy.
“We all support each other very much,” Christina’s star Frenchie Davis says. “All the annoying people went home in the battle rounds.”
Now with a six-date tour in place and ready to premiere Wednesday night at the Gibson Amphitheatre, this is just the start for many of the top eight Voice finalists, including Frenchie who’s already begun reaching out to record labels and producers to begin work on original material.
“You have to stick while the iron is hot without getting burned,” she told us.
