Chris Blue Unplugged and Totally Uncut
A couple of months ago, we got to spend some time with singer/songwriter Chris Blue. Since the conversation, he’s been gifted with the opportunity to win NBC’s The Voice. This is a two part series. First is the conversation after he got by the first round. Tomorrow, we get to hook back up and go deeper into the experience.
Chris grew up in a family of seven in a tiny house. His mother decided to put the family in a band called the Blue Family, where they sang at local churches. It later became the Blue Brothers and they performed across the Midwest and later at the Bobby Jones Gospel Show on BET. After high school, Chris worked various jobs and even attempted to go back to school. For the past six years, he has worked as a worship leader, where he met his fiancée, Stephanie, who is from England. They have been involved in a long distance relationship ever since. She’s been battling bone marrow cancer for most of her life and flatlined during surgery recently. It’s hard on Chris, who has been struggling with not being there through the hard times
