What 'The Voice' and my music have in common...

FORMER CONTESTANT OF THE TELEVISION SERIES "THE VOICE" GEOFF MCBRIDE FEATURED ON JAZZ ARTIST HULON'S LATEST RELEASE ALBUM "AFTER HOURS" SHOWCASING NEW COVER OF THE CLASSIC WEDDING ANTHEM "ALWAYS & FOREVER"

Los Angeles, CA – Hailing from Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, the NBC's "The Voice" former contestant Geoff McBride has turned heads in Hollywood, literally, as his appearance in "The Voice" under judge Christina Aguilera's team. Geoff McBride captivated and stunned the audience and judges alike with his rendition of Stevie Wonder's 'Higher Ground' but was eliminated a few weeks ago with a challenging rendition of Aretha Franklin's "Chain Of Fools". Geoff received flattering reviews by the judges and ultimately had to choose between Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green as his singing coach when he made his debut on the show earlier this season.
In the end it was Christina Aguilera's' quick "yes" that stole his heart and ultimately was bestowed the title as his coach. Geoff is currently trying to stay focused on music and has recently performed to three consecutive sold-out shows at the First Note Music Hall in Florida.
This was not Geoff McBride's first singing spotlight, as he is currently featured on jazz artist Hulon's, second album release After Hours. Geoff's sensational vocals are showcased on the track "Always and Forever", the classic love ballad originally byHeatwave in 1978. The album is currently grabbing admiring reviews and is currently charting on SmoothJazz.com and SmoothIndieStar.com and other jazz based radio charts.
Hulon's debut album, First Impressions spent 15 weeks on the Billboard Jazz Charts and features the single "Sax on the Beach" which reached #16 on the SmoothJazz.com Top 20 Indie Chart. Hulon's second album "After Hours" is proving to be just as successful as Hulon's debut album.
Check out Geoff McBride's vocals on Hulon's latest release "After Hours", available now on iTunes or his website (www.hulon.com). Stream the song in full on SoundCloud atwww.soundcloud.com/hulon/always-and-forever-vocal.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
