Growing up in the quiet little Texas town of Dublin seems a fateful beginning for a soul singer. The youngest of four children, a childhood bout with spinal meningitis proved nearly fatal, a paintball accident left him blind in one eye and some years later a severe heatstroke left him with amnesia and took him to the edge once again. Though these experiences inevitably influence Luke, his music remains eternally hopeful without an ounce of resignation.

About Luke on The Voice:
Fort Worth Texas Soul Singer Luke Wade ended up just shy of the Top 4 of NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series “The Voice” Season 7. Luke remained in the competition at Universal Studios and throughout every episode into the finale this season. Luke was featured on The Today Show, the Ellen Show, Entertainment Tonight, E!, and many, many other nationally syndicated programs throughout his journey on the show. He was an early favorite to win and was “the face” of The Voice promos starting three weeks out of the competition which began on September 22nd and ended on December 16th, 2014. He managed a 4 chair turn in the Blind Audition and won the Battle Round, the Knockout Round, the Live Play-offs, the Top 12, Top 10, Top 8, and was eliminated at the Top 5 mark. Luke was invited back to compete for the Wild Card round, but failed to advance to The Top 4. He gained thousands of fans, millions of YouTube views, a contract with Fleming Artists, and began a 2015 Tour on January 2nd of this year.

About Mia Z:
Mia Z, 16 year old Pittsburgh native so impressed judges on this season of The Voice that they made a big exception for her. Normally only the finalists get a chance to record a single at the end of the show. But Coach Pharrell Williams was wowed by Mia’s range and her passion for singing the blues at such a young age. Even as she made the semi-finals, Pharrell was making plans for her. So on the night of her elimination, Mia’s huge consolation prize was the chance to record the song “Child” which Pharrell wrote for her. Two weeks after the song was released, Mia’s single was in the top 20 on the iTunes blues chart. Her version of “Ain’t No Sunshine” from The Voice cracked the Top 50 on iTunes overall singles charts.

About TCU Frogs for the Cure
Frogs for the Cure is a partnership between Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas, and international philanthropy, Susan G. Komen®, to enhance awareness, provide education, raise funds, and support those in the fight against breast cancer. Each year, Frogs for the Cure produces a music video with a song recognized as an anthem for anyone who has been touched by breast cancer. TCU is the only school in the country to have this unique partnership with Susan G. Komen®.

In 2005, TCU initiated the idea of a pink-out celebration at halftime of a home football game in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink-out and pink ribbon game tributes are now established traditions at high school, college and NFL football games across the U.S.
