Durham has talent! So it should be no surprise that Bull City’s own, Lowell Oakley III will compete on the hit NBC reality show, “The Voice,” airing on Feb. 23 and 24 and March 2, 3 and 9 at 8 p.m. nightly. Oakley was among 45,000 who auditioned last summer, but one of a handful that made the cut to the blind auditions. Oakley will audition in front of the shows hosts: Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine. Oakley is currently a student at Elon University and a member of the a cappella group, Rip_Chord. Check out this video of Oakley performing with his father, H. Lowell Oakley II, managing partner at Koonce, Wooten & Haywood, LLP. http://vimeo.com/84806110

Good luck Lowell!
