LIVE: West Warwick’s Johnny Gates Talks about “The Voice” Audition and RI Support
Thursday, March 09, 2017
The Voice. Gates says he couldn’t believe it really was his life.
Gates describes his audition while singing Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May” while he appeared on GoLocal LIVE.
“As soon as Gwen turned around, I had this really calming feeling. I looked at my parents I could kind of seem them. I thought I’m going to finish this out like a regular show,” Gates says, “It was cool, I got to hug Gwen, I got to talk to Alicia Keys, Blake said he was a fan. It was probably the greatest night of my life.”
Gates heads back to Los Angeles for the competition, but he says he wanted to be at home with friends and family to see his Voice debut. Gates says he’s proud to represent Rhode Island and loves coming home when he can, especially to eat clam cakes and hang out at Narragansett Beach.
