America’s Got Talent and Masked Singer have ended their season but The Voice has recently begun theirs. On the Season 16 premiere of The Voice, NY local Maelyn Jarmon secured a spot on Team John Legend by singing "Fields of Gold" by Sting (and earned a four chair turn!). 25-year-old Maelyn, originally from Frisco, TX now resides in New York City.
Maelyn has always loved music, despite facing some challenges. At 2 years old, she had tubes inserted into her ears to treat recurring ear infections. The tubes ultimately damaged her eardrums and left her deaf in her right ear and with only 80% hearing in the left ear. But that didn’t stop her. At 13, Maelyn started voice lessons and became heavily involved in musical theater. At 17, she was encouraged to try Broadway and her parents moved with her to New York City to give it a shot. At 21, she stepped away from Broadway and is now focusing on creating original music.
We will talk with Maelyn about how she got her spot on The Voice and more.
