Idol Chatter: The Voice's "Keisha Renee Talks About Touring With Adam Lambert, Nicki Minaj"

The Voice Season 13 debuted this week and included an audition by someone many Adam Lambert fans may remember from Adam's "Trespassing" Tour. Keisha Renee, one of Adam's backup singers, truly ACED  her audition and got ALL FOUR judges to turn their chairs for her, when she sang her rendition of "I Can't Stop Loving You". She picked judge Blake Shelton to be her mentor/coach. She has an interest in country music but said on the show that she is also interested in Pop & Soul music.

In addition to her time with Adam on tour, she has been a back up singer for other artists, including Nicki Minaj..

This article/interview (linked below) is interesting and also inspiring, as Keisha has become a mom and has had some personal challenges which include being diagnosed with diabetes and her subsequent determination to lose a significant amount of weight over several years time, which she has faced head on and has succeeded spectacularly!!!

Below the official NBC TV photo of Keisha, are excerpts from the interview, with some really wonderful Adam Lambert mentions. And a video from Adam Lambert's "Tresspassing" Tour, as well as an embedded video from The Voice with Keisha Renee's audition.

Some QUOTES from the article:
During a Wednesday conference call with the media, the 30-year-old from Inglewood, Calif., talked about her career as a background singer, which has included stints with Adam Lambert, Jill Scott, JoJo and, for about four years, with Nicki Minaj.
Keisha calls working with Adam Lambert “one of my favorite times of my touring career. I love Adam Lambert so much. He’s such a sweet person.”
“I’m very grateful to him (Adam),” she says. “He gave me a chance. This industry is very image-driven. I’ve been trying to be a solo artist for a long time, but I didn’t look the part. “And he didn’t care about that. He’s like, ‘I want you to sing background for me. You have a voice and I want to showcase that.'” While touring with Adam, he’d also relinquish the spotlight and give her “little solos here and there.” “That is so selfless and so humble of him,” Keisha said, adding that she considers Adam “a lifelong friend” and noted that he also once took a chance on a singing show — back on Season 8 of American Idol.

Personal note from @glitzylady: I've been following Keisha Renee's journey since we first met her as part of Adam's "Trespassing" team and am very excited for her! Her story is inspiring and I truly wish her the best this season on "The Voice"!  Please read the interview at the LINK above, and if you get a chance, watch her audition in the embedded "The Voice" video below...

I so love seeing Keisha Renee's wonderful words about Adam! She knows a quality person when she meets one and works with one. So happy that she is back, happy and healthy. Love how much she values the time she spent with Adam. I wish her luck on the Voice!

Nanbert said...

Agreed, Dee R Gee...she has a powerhouse voice. She was certainly complimentary about surprise there! I wish her well. Hope she wins.

That video above from the Trespassing tour made me laugh. For some reason watching Terrance and Johnny dancing while wearing those huge yellow Afro wigs always made me think of Dr. Seuss's "Thing One and Thing Two"! LOL

Too bad that Adam never got a really full tour with "Trespassing". He looked/sounded great in those videos.....and I remember fondly those black fringed sleeves he wore with such aplomb with that black tophat and black leather pants...seen in other videos from the tour.
BTW....those black fringed sleeves were altered for the first QAL NA tour .....adding gold rivets and painting the fringe gold.....glorious! My favorite Adam costume! NOBODY could wear them like that...only Adam has the flair! I hope we'll see something similar again.

Yes, I believe that was Keisha Renee in the Another Lonely Night video. I never get tired of hearing others praise Adam for his talent and for his natural niceness.

@flttsp here it is on youtube.(Keisha on the voice)

Note that the video posted by @choons (above) doesn't include the pre-taped intro before Keisha's audition on The Voice..

So everyone who can access the embedded video of the full episode posted on the thread, it would be great to watch it..

@choons Thanks for posted the you tube video of Keisha's audition for those who cannot access the other one.. I do wish The Voice had included her introduction before she sang.. Lots of info about her, her family, her road to where she is today.. etc..
