A Miami native is again making waves in one of the most competitive reality TV competitions, NBC’s The Voice. In fact, the irresistibly quirky Korin Bukowski not only made it through The Battle Round this week on Team Gwen Stefani, but her rendition of Regina Spektor’s “Samson” alongside Chase Kerby even cracked the Top 100 on iTunes.
Korin comes from a musical family – both of her parents were in bands – and they even installed a “band room” in their house so Korin quickly learned to love music. At age nine, she started to take choir lessons, and she is classically trained. Korin calls her dad her biggest musical influence. She is entering her junior year as a pre-med student at The University of Miami, where she is part of Chi Omega. She auditioned on The Voice to give music “one last shot.”
Korin attended St. Thomas Episcopal Parish School in Coral Gables and later Gulliver Prep, where she tapped into her musical roots as part of the Gulliver Prep Vocal and String Ensembles.
Next up, she’ll compete in the dreaded Knock Out rounds before the final “Team Gwen” moves onto the live competition.
