‘The Voice’ Favorite Celeste Betton Talks Elimination –
Celeste Betton a Hinesville, Ga native has always been passionate about music. Years prior to her appearances on ‘The Voice,’ she was just steps away from joining the traveling choir while attending Alabama A&M, but she found out she was pregnant. Her opportunity to get back on her musical career path came after her military husband’s career moved them to New York. She was then able to follow her dreams and her passion for music.
During last month’s battle round broadcast against contestant Mark Hood, Pharrell Williams didn’t choose Betton. The two contestants battled it out as they sang “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Betton thanked Williams after that announcement and sang a verse of the song, “It is Well.”
Williams chose Hood again on Wednesday as his one option – in addition to voters’ two choices – to continue on in the show.
Betton participated in multiple interviews throughout the nation after her first experience on the show. She has since gained several additional followers on Facebook and Twitter.
