It’s been quite a journey for the Season 10 finalists of ‘The Voice.’ Ahead of the big May 24 finale, Adam Wakefield dished EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com all about the lessons he’s learned from the show, and why he’s not getting too confident about this being his ‘big shot’ in the industry.
Despite making it to the Finals of The Voice in Season 10, Adam Wakefield isn’t convinced that he’ll automatically have a successful music career. Instead, he’s just used the experience as an opportunity to do what he loves, and reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why that’s the most important thing he’ll take away from this show.
“I think a lot of people try out for The Voice and they’re like, ‘This is my shot,'” Adam told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The important thing is just to enjoy music to the day you die. I would’ve been happy being in Nashville, playing for people and playing with my bluegrass band for 20 people every week. The important part of this experience is making sure that it makes you a better musician and a better artist. It’s not about, no offense, giving the interviews and all that other stuff. It’s about writing songs and singing and being a performer and getting out of it, musically, all that you can.”
Adam is representing coach Blake Shelton in the Finals, and he’s up against Alisan Porter, Laith Al-Saadi and Hannah Huston. The artist all sang their hearts out with three performances each during the May 23 episode, but only one will be named the winner on May 24. Stream music from The Voice artists and coaches HERE.
This isn’t the first time Adam has alluded to not wanting to get caught up in everything that comes along with having a mainstream music career, either. He previously admitted that his experience on The Voice has been “eye-opening” because it allowed him to realize that the industry isn’t “all just glitz and glamour.” Yikes!
Do you think Adam has a chance to win The Voice, HollywoodLifers?
