Last nights show made me proud of 2 plus size beauties! These battle rounds can be really unfair matches and strange song choices but I was so excited to see these 2 beautiful and talented women get a spotlight on national tv proving that there is an audience and place for singers that aren’t 19 and size 4 prancing around in booty shorts and stripper heals.

Adele has truly helped pave the way for some acceptance…but I seriously doubt she would’ve broken through if from the US.  Europe is so much more open than Americans to diverse music and appearance. They don’t choose their music based on what is force fed to them by top 40 radio stations like ours that play the same handful of artists over and over and OVER. I have dealt with discrimination first hand on being a plus size woman. I have been told to my face, we LOVE your voice…but “you don’t have the whole package”. Meaning…you don’t look like a model and you’re too old.

I’m excited the US  is getting to see some big girls with big voices, and they ARE BEAUTIFUL to look at!!

Take a look at this porcelain faced, red wild- maned, blue-eyed beauty, Erin Willett.

And here’s the other plus sized beauty, Katrina Parker. She has this cute retro style and vocally she definitely is reminiscent of Adele but has her own personal flourishes.

 

Thank you to The Voice for exposing the US to talent that isn’t packaged up as only being under 25 and size 6! I hope these girls gain a huge following
