Moriah Formica From NBC’s The Voice
Moriah was raised on rock music. Her dad played a lot of ’80s hair metal around the house, which lead her to picking up a guitar and teaching herself how to play. Moriah started to sing when she was 9 years old and her first performance was at a graduation party that shocked her whole family. At 11, she joined the Modern Day Music Program, a music school that allows kids to join bands and play rock music together. Through the program she was able to meet Michael Sweet, who is the lead singer of ’80s metal band Stryper. She opened for him at a local show and later sang on his most recent album, which reached #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock chart.
