Edinboro native to appear on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ Monday
A dozen summers ago, the family singing trio Westbrook, based in Edinboro, was a headlining act at the very first Kingdom Bound By the Bay music festival that I was part of producing when managing WCTL radio. The group had released a CD and received some national airplay for their tight familial harmonies.
Fast forward to the fall of 2012, and a member of the new generation of Westbrook’s will make a national splash on NBC Monday night on “The Voice.” Celica Westbrook, Edinboro native and 16-year old budding pop star now based in Nashville, will most likely appear on Monday’s blind auditions that air locally on WICU at 8:00 PM.
Celica has been working with Nashville producer Keith Thomas, and has several songs released on YouTube and iTunes, yielding over 420,000 views of her music. Now she’s going for a chance to work with a world-famous singing coach and the ultimate possibility of scoring a major label deal.
Celica’s older brother Graham is back in Erie, attending Mercyhurst University pursuing an Intelligence degree. He’ll be watching, and you can cheer for Celica too, by watching “The Voice” Monday night on WICU.
