Former contestant on "The Voice" to bring anti-drug/alcohol awareness message to Waukon High School students Friday

Jared Blake

Former NBC “The Voice” Season One contestant Jared Blake will be performing an intimate acoustic set followed by a question and answer session to bring an anti-drug/alcohol awareness messaged to the students at Waukon High School in Waukon, at 9:30 a.m., and Seneca School District in Seneca, WI, at 1 p.m., this Friday, October 3.
That evening, Blake will also take part in a family-friendly concert at 8 p.m. at Leisure Time Sports Bar and Bowl in Prairie du Chien, WI presented by Live To Be Sober and WQPC Q94.3. Proceeds from the cover charge for the concert in Prairie du Chien will be donated to the Allamakee Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) and a similar program in the Seneca, WI area.
Several years sober now, country music’s “bad boy, gone good,” as Blake has been labeled, recently joined in partnership with the addiction referral service Live to be Sober, located in Michigan. Inspired to share his story and influence others, Blake created an intimate acoustic break within his high-energy musical performances where he talks to audiences about his personal struggles and winning back his life.
Blake was first introduced to the world in 2011 on Season One of NBC’s “The Voice” as an original member of Team Blake (Shelton). Blake has since shared stages with such country music acts as Lee Brice, Thompson Square, The Band Perry, and Randy Houser and has been featured in publications ranging from People to Rolling Stone magazines. He released his first EP since his debut on “The Voice” September 30. The debut single off of the album, “Stomp,” is featured on Sirius XM’s Country station “The Highway.”
