Wondering if Blake Shelton still keeps up with the singers he coached on NBC’s The Voice?
He does, and he loves it, especially when it comes to teenager Xenia Martinez.
“Just got a text from @X3NIA17!!!!!!” Blake gushed on Twitter . “I swear I can’t stop smiling. . . . I love her so much it’s ridiculous.”
Xenia, 16, feels the same way, telling The Hollywood Reporter this summer, “I thank Blake [Shelton] especially for everything that he’s done.”
Xenia—now home-schooled—is working on her first album for mega-label Universal Republic, which boasts artists such as pop acts Nicki Minaj and Owl City.
“The music that we’ve been working on is so, like, diverse, I guess you could say,” Xenia recently told her hometown newspaper. “I really love Amy Winehouse, John Mayer and Adele . . . They have soulful music. I guess that’s mainly what I want my music to have, ’cause I feel it’s really important.”
