Chenango Valley Teen To Audition For NBC's The Voice

By Kerry Longobucco.
A rising star from Broome County will take her talents to Philadelphia this weekend -- where she'll audition for singing competition 'The Voice.'

Diamond Ming, a freshman at Chenango Valley High, has been singing all her life. she says her passion grew over the years listening to gospel music in church.

Becoming a contestant on the popular show would mean putting her life as a typical teen on pause -- but Ming says she's thrilled to find out how far her talent could take her.

"I just think it would be pretty awesome. I mean I would definitely miss just being able to wake up in the morning and go to school, because I actually do like going to school," Ming said. "But I just figure you know, if an opportunity is in front of me, why not take it?"
