Interlochen alumna Lauren Duski (IAC 2001) has advanced to the final round of The Voice.
Duski first appeared on the NBC show on Feb. 27, 2017, when she performed “You Belong To Me” by fellow Interlochen alumna Jewel (IAA 90-92) in her blind audition. Duski told Interlochen Public Radio’s Dan Wanschura that her northern Michigan roots and shared connection to Interlochen Center for the Arts inspired her audition song choice.
Since then, Duski has won the hearts of viewers across America, who voted her into the final round of competition. On Tuesday, May 16, 2017, Duski’s rendition of Shenandoah’s “Ghost In This House,” which she performed in the semi-final round, held the #1 spot on the iTunes charts. If Duski wins, she will receive a recording contract as a grand prize.
