Justin Kilgore's amazing experience on The Voice sadly ended this week when he was eliminated in the Knockouts but he has big plans for the future! We chatted with him about his experience and what's next:




Justin's official bio from NBC's The Voice's Website:

Age: 30

Hometown: Buffalo, Texas

Resident: Austin, Texas

Growing up in a small town, Justin felt the need to suppress his sexuality, and in turn, he didn't feel that he could pursue his love for country music unless he was hiding who he really was. In his sophomore year, he made the difficult yet precedent-setting decision to be the first male cheerleader in his town. Justin came out at 19 and moved to Austin soon after to pursue music full-time, but he was still struggling to chase his true musical passions, which led him to try pop/EDM music. Feeling discouraged, Justin ended up quitting music altogether. But when an opportunity to audition for "The Voice" came up, he could not ignore his love for country music and knew this was his chance to be the artist he was meant to be.

Jaron Strom's blind autition featured a sweet jacket and a last second turn to join Team Blake on The Voice. We had the chance to check in with him this morning about his experience on the show so far.

Follow Jaron's journey here: TWITTER, INSTAGRAMFACEBOOK

Jaron's bio from NBC's The Voice:

Age: 29

Hometown: Shelby, North Carolina

Resident: Charlotte, North Carolina

Jaron is a web designer by profession, but he spends all of his extra effort making his own music. Even though Jaron's parents sang together in a duo when they were younger, it was his grandfather that instilled in him a love of music. It wasn't until college that he began performing in church and singing at open mic nights. Eventually he joined a band. He even landed a publishing deal with Colbie Caillat's publishing company. While Jaron has a local following, he is ready for a big breakthrough

#TrendyTuesday #SlicedKetchup

Maybe you're someone who's thought, "I sure love ketchup, but it's just not portable!"  Maybe you've never heard of ketchup packets or you've wondered what a ketchup flavored fruit roll up would taste like. Well, a company launched a Kickstarter campaign for a product just for you! "Slice of Sauce: an All-Natural, No-Mess 'Slice' of Ketchup." 

It looks pretty gross and probably won't be cheap so I'm not sure how successful it will be, honestly. There's no preservatives and less sugar and salt, so hopefully that can make up for a strange consistancy...

Check out their Kickstarter campaign HERE

Sharane Calister is on Team Alicia and won her battle round! She spent a few minutes chatting with Brittany and Ballzer about her experience so far and what it's like to work with Alicia Keys. Check out the interview:



Sharane's Bio from The Voice's website:

Age: 24

Hometown: Des Moines, Iowa

Resident: Des Moines, Iowa

Music has served as the only constant in Sharane's turbulent upbringing. At 10, Sharane was adopted by an older cousin while her twin sister was adopted by an outside family member. Sharane's adoptive mom was soon diagnosed with breast cancer - a battle she continues to fight today. The violin became an escape for Sharane during these difficult times. It wasn't until high school gospel choir that Sharane and her sister were finally reunited. After graduation, Sharane began traveling with bands that perform at weddings, corporate events and private parties all over the country.

#TrendyTuesday #datingapps #momhelp

The Dating App, The Inner Circle, promises "selective dating." It's been in Europe for about 5 years and debuted in the US last year. They help to sort through some of the jerks by looking at a few social media pages so it's a little less likely that you'll find duds. Their latest tactic is to have "hip" moms give you their opinion. Six Amsterdam-based women/mothers are using their experience as “people who conquered the dating game” to approve users and handle the app’s customer support. Not the worst idea we've heard and certainly a fun part-time job for a working mother!
