ALLISON ERICSON, VALDOSTA TODAY NEWS DIRECTOR:
VALDOSTA — Bay Brooks, 17-year-old, Valdosta native and Zacadoo’s fanatic returned home Thursday to share her journey on becoming a contestant on NBC’s The Voice.
Brooks was born and raised in Valdosta but transferred to Nashville, TN six months ago to launch her career as a musician. In this year’s season of the show Brooks joined country singer, Blake Shelton’s team.
“I didn’t know what to expect going into it, so stepping on the stage I was like I’m not supposed to be here, I’m supposed to be watching this on my TV,” Brooks said. “It was the most terrifying and exciting thing I’ve ever done.”
