If you watch The Voice, you’re familiar with Beverly and Frenchie, the two members of Christina Aguillara’s team who are still alive in the competition. If you’re not familiar with the show, click on the link and get to know more about it. It’s entertaining.
CeeLo Green, Christina, Adam, and Blake Shelton are the judges, and they each have a team of singers. They coach their singers and have a lot of fun while honing their voices. My little girl loves this show, and I have no trouble watching it with her simply because of the presence of Adam Levine. After seeing him and Maroon 5 live in October, I love him even more than I did before. And that’s all I’m going to say about that.
Yvonne, I sure hope you’re reading this right now. Adam is the cure for all the problems in the world.
And he’s on TV every week.
How sweet is that??
Ok, back to Frenchie and Beverly.
There’s something unusual and cool about them. Yes, they both have great singing voices and stage presence (Frenchie, especially), and they seem to possess a wisdom and maturity that the other contestants do not. I happen to love the fact that Beverly lives an alternative lifestyle and is embraced nonetheless; makes me think and hope that progress has been made in the acceptance department.
The fact that two mature (read: older) women who don’t have conventional looks won out over the two younger, more traditionally attractive girls fills my heart with happiness.
Here’s the team Christina started with:
And here’s who’s left:
As far as I know, neither Frenchie nor Beverly has cancer or has endured chemo. My assumption is that they eschew hair on purpose, and for all my cancerchick friends out there in blogland, I’m calling this a victory for bald girls everywhere.
