Raise Your Glass: March 2015 Beat India Carney Places Fifth on The Voice Season 8

Last night, Brooklyn-based talent India Carney placed fifth on the eighth season of The Voice, as a member of Christina Aguilera’s “Team Xtina.” Before that, however, she spoke with Founder & Editor-in-Chief Peter LaBerge as the March 2015 Beat Converses Feature.

Carney auditioned for the acclaimed show earlier this year, as a senior Voice major at the University of California, Los Angeles. As a high school senior at the famed Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City, Carney was recognized as a 2011 YoungArts Winner for Voice and Theatre, and was ultimately named a United States Presidential Scholar in the Arts.

We at Adroit are so sorry to see India go — we tweeted and voted and re-tweeted until our fingers popped off! We’ll be following her next moves vigilantly through social media, and suggest you do the same. Iff you haven’t found her music, better late than never!
