Felicia Temple (born January 28, 1988 in Teaneck, New Jersey) is an American singer. Felicia grew up in a family of musicians, so she’s been singing “since she could talk,” then began learning to play piano by ear when she was just 13 years old. She started traveling as a background singer for her father when she was 14. Felicia released an EP, “To Whom It May Concern,” after years of recording demos at New York City’s East Side Sound Studio, which she followed up with a second EP called “Bedroom Chronicles.” After beating cancer in 2016, Felicia auditioned for season 12 of The Voice, and picked Alicia Keys as her coach. She was stolen by Blake in the Battle Round, but unfortunately, eliminated during Knockouts. Blake brought Felicia back as his comeback artist in the Live Playoffs (Top 20), after which she was officially sent home.
