‘Voicing’ her thoughts

(Page 3 of 3)

Asked what people thought about her hair when she first adopted the style, Martinez said her parents were taken aback. “This was the first really wild thing I’d done with my hair,” she said. “My parents only saw one side at first, and they were like, ‘OK, she dyed her hair.’ But then I turned around and they saw it was two-toned, and they kind of flipped out.”

“The Voice’s” production rules do not allow Martinez to be specific about her run on the show yet, but the songstress, who will attend a BHS-administered online home school program as she pursues her singing career, said she is enjoying the ride and working with her celebrity coach.

“Everyone goes on the show with preconceived notions about which judge they’ll pick,” she said. “I chose Adam because I thought he’d been a great coach in past seasons and I liked that he kept fighting for me until the end. Adam really challenges me to do things I think I can’t when I’m working with him. He makes me feel accomplished, and he pushes me to try things. I feel like I’m on a steep learning curve, and that no matter what happens on the show, this will have been a growing experience.”

“The Voice” airs on NBC on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
