'The Voice,' which debuts April 26, features a panel of "coaches" - country singer Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine. Each of the coaches will chose a team of singers during a blind audition (the judges won't see the performers' faces and will choose based solely on vocal ability). The coaches will then work with their teams to help develop their performing and singing skills. The winner will be awarded $100,000 and a record deal.
Frenchie was chosen by Christina during her audition Thursday.
After 'Idol,' Frenchie landed a role in the Broadway production of 'Rent.' She played the role of Effie in the West Coast touring company of 'Dreamgirls,' and in 2007, starred in 'Mahalia, A Gospel Musical' in Hartford.
In 2008, Frenchie toured with Ruben Studdard in 'Ain't Misbehavin' She is set to play the role of the Fairy Godmother in a production of 'Cinderella' in Berkley.
'The Voice' will air at 9 p.m. on Tuesdays.
