Welcome Jershika Maple:
We’re joined on the Starline by one of the stars from season 21 of NBC’s “The Voice”. She grew up singing in church but now she’s taking everyone to church we welcome the talented Jershika Maple.
Jershika, let’s go Beyond the Mic. You guard during the day and gig at night. How was the pandemic quarantine tough on you? You got into a rhythm of I guard, then I gig, and all of the sudden that 2nd part is missing.
So when you couldn’t gig how did those missing opportunities change you?
You have the opportunity, because of the steal, to be coached by 2 mentors. How has the time on two teams helped you for your future?
How has Kelly and John’s tips helped you? Was there a tip from one or the other that blew your mind?
What did it mean to lose and to feel that heartache, you lose a battle and you get that gut punch.
Favorite verse in the bible?

One Big Question
No matter what happens on The Voice, what’s your one dream you will continue to strive for?
She always reps Ft. Lewis in Washington, hates the spaghetti MRE’s and would get a tattoo of musical notes behind her ear. We thank Jershika Maple from season 21 of NBC’s “The Voice” for taking the time to talk with us today.
