NBC's The Voice  recent contestant, Brooke Simpson is 26 years old and is a full-blooded Native American from the Haliwa-Saponi tribe. Brooke is from Hollister, North Carolina and currently lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She grew up on tribal grounds with 4,000 Native Americans, including most of her family. Every year they have a powwow and celebrate their traditions just like their forefathers. She discovered her love of music at age seven when she started singing with her parents. They are full-time evangelists and would take trips every weekend in their RV to different churches to sing as a family, leading praise and worship. Brooke has been performing for many years and it's gotten to the point where she has started to look for a plan B, so a lot is riding on this audition.

Below Brooke sings Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" during The Voice knockouts and absolutely nailing her audition. Brooke competed in the Playoff Round, landing third place but first in our hearts.  https://www.nbc.com/the-voice/credits/credit/season-13/brooke-simpson

Jan Michael Looking Wolf performed his award-winning song, Live As One with the Oregon State University choirs and his ensemble. The song "Live As One" was written and released by Jan Michael in 2010. It's message shares a universal truth that we all are connected and have equal value regardless of nationality, ethnicity, heritage, gender, and personal differences. Live As One has received international radio play and won the award for Best Music Video at the Native American Music Awards in 2011 from a live taping of a special performance with native musicians from across the country on stage with Jan Michael and the Ed Koban band in Niagra Falls, New York. This version was specially arranged for choirs by OSU graduate student in Music Education, Danika Locey and conducted by Dr. Steven Zielke. In working with OSU, a published choral arrangement will be available to choirs across the country and beyond.

"These are the many voices of the original Americas and they arrive at their strongest and in record-breaking numbers for all to hear. 

Our recordings span from historical initiatives, to present day questions for the great leaders, and Native youth speaking louder than ever with their powerful raps about their poignant plights armed with a spirit of undaunted perseverance. No other organization can reflect such an impressive and diverse array of talent and soundscapes from all ages and tribal nations throughout the Americas.”
