Dawson Coyle, a former contestant on NBC’s The Voice will be performing for the Cumberland County College’s Faith Fellowship Club on Thursday, May 4th, during “The Gathering,” the club’s annual celebration of the National Day of Prayer.
Coyle performed through several rounds of the nationally televised competition show as part of country singer Blake Shelton’s team. Williamstown resident Coyle, 18, was later coached by Alicia Keys, but has since been eliminated from the contest.
Coyle began taking lessons at a Gloucester County church where his interest in singing and playing guitar began to grow.
“I sang and I was horrible, but I really like the vibe of music,” said Coyle. "So, I started playing more. I got better with my guitar and I started doing local coffee houses."
Coyle wants his listeners to find hope in his music, he says.
"The Gathering" takes place 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Coyle will performing after 1 p.m. Prayer will take place at noon for those interested. There will be volleyball, karaoke, and a water-balloon game.
A BBQ hot dog lunch will be available, free to Cumberland County College students, and $4.75 for non-students. There will also be DJ Tim Ewing, and the band Reverbnation will perform.
