WORCESTER – Television’s premier singing competition series — NBC’s The Voice — continues its blind audtions on Monday, October 7 with an appearance by Worcester-area musician Ricky Duran.

Duran, 30, of Grafton, auditioned for The Voice earlier this year and will appear on Monday’s blind auditions  at 8 PM.


Duran — a singer, songwriter and guitarist — hopes to continue forward into the show’s battle rounds and playoffs to have an opportunity to perform live in the series finale. 

The four-time Emmy award winning The Voice is in its 17th season and features music icons Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton as the competitions coaches who have to choose which performers advance to the next round.
