Danica Holland, 22, from Glengarriff has made it through the battle auditions and on to the live shows of RTÉ’s smash hit show, ‘The Voice of Ireland’. Contestants that have made it through to the live stage in Dublin’s Helix are in with a chance of winning a recording contract with Universal.
Danica is hoping that West Cork will get behind her and vote in her favour on the night of her next performance on Sunday, March 23, from 6.30pm.
She says that the competition has “given me great confidence, as I would have previously been too shy to sing in front of people”.
Danica comes from a very musical family; her maternal great grandparents were part of the Entertainments National Service Association or ENSA, an organisation set up in 1939 to provide entertainment for British armed forces personnel during World War II. Danica’s paternal grandfather played the accordion and sang. Both her parents also sing.
Danica works in the West Cork Hotel in Skibbereen. She hopes to pursue a career in music.
