Reggae artiste Anita Antoinette had the four celebrity judges on "The Voice" each giving a standing ovation for her rendition of Bob Marley’s Turn Your Lights Down Low.

Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, and Blake Shelton praised her exceptional talent with Pharell saying "This is a great day for you, because you have four people who can take you all the way there." This was Antoinette’s second attempt at the competition and Levine said she did her homework and returned to make an impact.

Singer-songwriter Anita Antoinette creates insightful, passionate melodies that combine the soulfulness of her Jamaican roots with a profound understanding of the world we inhabit. A riveting, inspirational performer, she shares passion and intensity with audiences large and small. Her stirring original compositions offer a unique take on the reggae tradition, incorporating elements of jazz, blues, funk and soul to create a musical hybrid that races the mind and lifts the spirit.

Daughter of reggae icon Clinton Fearon, Anita grew up dancing to the rhythm of her father’s songs in Kingston, Jamaica. She came to the United States in 1996, where she settled first in South Boston and then New Britain, Connecticut with her mother, brothers, and sister. A self-taught singer and guitarist, Anita began writing her own music as a teenager, inspired both by her father and by other legends such as Bob Marley, India.Arie and Erykah Badu. She graduated from the prestigious Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts in 2008, and was accepted to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where she earned a Bachelors Degree in Professional Music: Concentration in Music Business and Songwriter.

Anita Antoinette has performed on stages large and small throughout New England, the Northeast and the Pacific Northwest, including a 2008 appearance at the Library of Congress in Washington DC. She has appeared on the 3rd season of NBC's hit show, "The Voice" in 2012. An artist in every sense of the word, she paints, writes, draws and takes pictures while continuing to write music. She currently lives in Boston, where she is now working on her debut album.
