MEET THE ARTISTS
Josh Kaufman- Team Adam
Josh has been singing on-and-off his entire life. He supports his wife and three kids by playing local gigs and working as a SAT prep tutor. Josh is hoping The Voice will allow him to stop tutoring and be a full-time musician to support his family. Follow Josh on Twitter at @IAmJoshKaufman.
Audra McLaughlin- Team Blake
Audra is a hard-working college student who's overcome a learning disability to earn a 3.5 GPA. A former victim of bullying, Audra is very involved with anti-bullying campaigns and has performed at several charity events. Through her music, she hopes to inspire others who have been victims of bullying. Follow Audra on Twitter at @AudraLynn21.
Bria Kelly- Team Usher

She's currently the front woman for her own band and now that her mother has recovered from a nearly fatal illness, Bria is ready to take her career to the next level.

Tess Boyer- Team Blake (Originally on Team Usher)
Tess grew up dancing, cheerleading and competing in pageants. She was a cheerleader for the St. Louis Rams football team and currently works with special needs children while studying pre-law. Tess's true love is singing, and she auditioned for The Voice to prove she has what it takes. Follow Tess on Twitter at @TessHannahMusic.
Dawn & Hawkes- Team Adam
Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes met dancing at a blues bar in Austin, Texas. They began writing and playing music together, and eventually fell in love. The indie-folk duo is hoping to win the hearts of America during their time on The Voice. Follow Dawn & Hawkes on Twitter at @DawnAndHawkes.
Josh Murley- Team Shakira (Originally on Team Adam)
Music has always been a part of Josh's life; he grew up singing in a choir in high school, and then became a full-time musician. He has been playing shows around Texas with his band ever since. Money has always been a struggle for Josh, and now that he's a father, he wants to offer a better future for his family. He is hoping that auditioning for The Voice will be his chance to provide for his family. Follow Josh on Twitter at @JoshMurleyMusac.
Deja Hall- Team Shakira
Deja is the child of two military parents. Because she moved around a lot, her only constant growing up was music. She's a varsity basketball player who's very competitive, despite having only one kidney. She gets told that she should take it easy but refuses to slow down, and that's why Deja's determined to be The Voice. Follow Deja on Twitter at @DejaHallMusic.
Music Box- Team Usher (Originally on Team Shakira)
Music Box is a single mother trying to make it as a full-time singer. She dealt with stage fright until she was 18, when she adopted the name "Music Box." She wants to grow as an artist and to be an inspiration to her son. Follow Music Box on Twitter at @IAmMusicBox.
Madilyn Paige- Team Usher
Madilyn lived in Japan as a young child and has taken up singing since moving back to the U.S. She loves making music videos and short films with her friends and has performed in various local competitions.
