Artists from hit TV show The Voice, including Prinnie Stevens, Taga Paa and Darren Percival, took time out from rehearsals in Sydney over the weekend to help inspire a group of disadvantaged and at-risk Australian youth.
Twelve artists from Team Keith and Team Joel who have triumphed in the Battle Rounds and are themselves fast becoming household names, visited the young people at a Musicians Making a Difference (MMAD) mentoring camp, delivered in partnership with Vodafone. The artists saw their role as contestants reversed as they took on the role of mentor and coach to the young performers.
Musicians Making a Difference, Programs Manager, Emma O’Connell, has been working full-time for the charity over the past year after she was selected as a recipient of one of Vodafone’s World of Difference placements in 2011. There are none more passionate than Emma about these young people, who’ve faced some major challenges in their lives already and are finding inspiration and support in music.
As a part of the day’s activity, The Voice artists not only put camp attendees through their lyrical paces but artists, Prinnie Stevens from Team Joel and Taga Paa and Darren Percival from Team Keith, also awarded three stand-out MMAD attendees, with special tickets to the live filming of The Voice in Sydney.
