Houla Entertainment APCA National Showcasing Spotlight Artist is Kristen Merlin.
After earning her BA in Music and Sound Recording from the University of New Haven in Connecticut and brushing up on her performance chops all over Massachusetts with her own band, Merlin’s talents landed her a spot on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning series, “The Voice.” Her audition of Sugarland’s “Something More” received some heated haggling between coaches Adam Levine and Shakira. Merlin made the decision to join Team Shakira and became a powerhouse female staple of “The Voice: Season 6”. Merlin, who finished fourth overall on “The Voice,” is now making her debut with original music.
Kristen is showcasing Thursday, March 9 at the Dinner Showcase.
