News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Weds. Nov. 19, 2014: Bob Marley must be smiling down from heaven – that is if he is a fan of NBC music reality show, The Voice.
Jamaican-born, Connecticut-based singer, Anita Antoinette Fearon last night advanced into the Top 10 of the competition after her cover of Marley’s ‘Redemption Song’ Monday night. The singer, who moved to the U.S. at age 8, secured the second highest number of votes overall to move on. She was the first person from Team Gwen Stefanie to advance.
Anita is the daughter of reggae icon Clinton Fearon and is a self-taught singer and guitarist.
She began writing her own music as a teenager, inspired both by her father and by other legends such as Bob Marley. She is a graduate from the prestigious Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and holds a Bachelors Degree in Music
