If you have been following me for any length of time you know that I have a friend who is currently competing on The Voice on NBC and I'm writing this now to ask you for your help. He will be competing in the semifinals on Monday April 30 and he needs our votes to get through to the finals!
I first met Chris Mann in 2009 at the Blissdom Conference. Since that time I have gotten to know him better in real life, bought and loved every song he has recorded, followed along as he has tried to find his place in the industry, watched as he has developed more and more into the incredible artist he is today and of course watched him kick butt on The Voice.
When I first heard he was going to be competing on The Voice I was beyond thrilled, this was just the break he needed, this was going to be big.
It is surreal to see him on my TV each week, I can only imagine what it must be like for him. I knew how much I loved him and of course in my mind there was not doubt the was going to win the whole thing, however, he needed more than just me to love him, he needed America to love him, and they do! It has been so amazing to watch this play out and see all of people who have grown to love and appreciate Chris as much as I have for years.
So I am reaching out to all of you, my friends, my fans, my followers and asking you to join in, become a #MannFan, vote and help Chris live out this dream to the end. Once the show has aired I will be sharing and tweeting the individual number to call in to vote for Chris but for now here are the basics on voting. Get ready! If you would like to follow all the action on Twitter Monday night use the hashtags #MannFans #Vote4ChrisMann #OperaSwag
On a personal note,
Chris, congratulations on all you have accomplished so far on the show, you have made this mama and many more extremely proud. Each time I hear you sing and see you on TV I get chills and cry tears of joy for you. You are an amazing artist and a wonderful person and you deserve all that this experience has brought you and all that it will bring in the future. I have said it many times and I will say it again, you are "The Voice", good luck in the semifinals, we love you and are behind you 100%! Now, let's do this!
PS. Maybe you will finally get to meet Ellen!
