On Monday, October 7, 2013, folks will be lining up outside of Embers Venue in Rensselaer, Indiana to hear Charlotte Sometimes from Season 2 of NBC’s show The Voice.
little Indiana caught up with Charlotte Sometimes to ask a few questions before she heads to her big performance at the Rensselaer, Indiana event hall. Although Charlotte isn’t a Hoosier–she is definitely performing in a very small Indiana town!
Interview with Charlotte Sometimes from Season 2 of NBC’s The Voice
Have you heard Charlotte Sometimes sing? Her version of Apologies is absolutely fantastic–and playing on Spotify on repeat in my house. Let me tell you–she’s got a fabulous voice!
What’s even more incredible is that this young lady was diagnosed at the age of fourteen with condylar resorption. It’s a rare condition that causes the bones in the jaw to break down. That’s not exactly a good thing for a singer!
By the time she was sixteen, she had two ribs removed to help reconstruct her face. It hasn’t held her back! She’s belting out songs and releasing albums. You can see a few of them below (they are affiliate links–see how I shop local with wishlists).
Questions for Charlotte Sometimes
How did you get your musical start? Have you always been into singing?
I started dancing when I was 3 and was also always singing. It’s always been a part of my life.
You were on The Voice, season 2! How did that feel when all four judges turned around during your blind audition?
I was so overwhelmed in a good way. I couldn’t believe they all turned for me. It was really cool.
I think it just made me a better performer. I learned to trust myself and my instincts more.
You’ll be performing in the small town of Rensselaer, Indiana soon. With a population under 6,000 people, is this the smallest place you’ve performed?
That’s rad! Yes, I think so!
What can folks expect to see at your upcoming show at Embers Venue in Rensselaer, Indiana?
Acoustic music with lots of percussion and a side of witty banter.
Do you have any words of wisdom for others that want to take their music to a different level?
I would say go with yourself and put all your eggs in one basket if you really want to go for it. No one will bet on you if you don’t bet on yourself.
Is there anything that you would like to add that you think Little Indiana readers should know about you, your work, or your concert tour?
I can’t wait to meet all of you! Get ready for some Jersey in Little Indiana.
Small Town Fun!
It just goes to show that there’s always something to do in a small town. Thanks to Charlotte Sometimes for taking time out of her busy schedule to answer my questions.
Small Towns: Destinations, not Drive-Thrus! I’m Jessica Nunemaker and THIS is little Indiana!
