NAKIA and THE BLUES GRIFTER at the ODEON
THE VOICE Comes to Mason
On the first season of "The Voice," Nakia immediately became a fan favorite before finishing as a semifinalist. More than 14 million viewers tuned in each week to witness Nakia wowing the show's four celebrity coaches with his electric stage presence and using his gritty voice to make Top 40 songs his own. Nakia and The Blues Grifters will take the stage at the Odeon theater in Mason, Texas Saturday July 20 at 7:00 PM.
Nakia’s vocal talent is the kind that instantly turns listeners into fans—among them The Voice celebrity judge CeeLo Green. That relationship led to an invitation by Green to Nakia to sing on his Muppets Christmas Show.
With a heart that beats to the rhythms of Muscle Shoals soul Nakia takes classic blues and soul songs, redefines them in his own unique and powerful way, and gifts them back to us as something fresh and new. The songs come from greats such as Willie Dixon, Elmore James, Otis Rush and Jimmy Reed. Nakia also pays tribute to other “grifters” like the Stones and the Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
