‘Voice’ Top 10 finalist Keisha Renee talks ‘Hunger Games’ voting save, Janice elimination
When the Top 10 finalists of NBC’s “The Voice” were announced this week, Inglewood-based singer Keisha Renee got some good news.
America voted to save the 31-year-old aspiring country music artist.
“It’s like ‘The Hunger Games,’” she says. “You are waiting for your name to be called so you know that you’re safe.”

“With America giving me this song, they know I don’t want to do just country,” says Renee, a former backup singer for Nicki Minaj who grew up singing in her church choir. “I don’t think I could ever be a traditional country artist because my roots are so diverse.”
She’s even getting into rock and roll.
