Delvin Choice is an Alumni of Greenville County’s Fine Arts Center, Wade Hampton High, and Woodmont High, where his father ( Mr. Willie Choice) has been employed as the Plant Engineer for the past four years and has been a school district employee for the past 14 years. Delvin’s father can be seen performing with him on The Voice, which featured Delvin’s initial performance for season 6 on Tuesday, February 26, 2014. We look forward to what this season will bring and are proud to have one of Greenville County Schools’ own to represent us with such talent. Mr. Willie Choice recalls that his son, “…came into this world singing and we knew right then that he was a very special gift.”
Delvin Choice returned to “The Voice” on Tuesday night for a blind audition, singing Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You.”
In the blind audition, judges listen without seeing the contestant. If they feel the contestant belongs on their team, they can turn around. If more than one turns around, they then try to convince the contestant to join their team.
All of the judges–Shakira, Adam Levin, Usher, and Blake Shelton–wanted Choice for their team.
”There is no doubt in my mind that you can win this whole thing,” Levine told the 24-year-old singer.
Choice did ultimately choose to join Team Levine.
According to his Facebook page, Choice completed four years of classical voice training, and has been working on singing projects for years. That includes winning first place for The National Association Of Teachers of Singing in 2005 and 2006.
RE: Makeup Days for Greenville County Schools
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(2/26/2014) 10:30 AM
Contact: Oby G. Lyles, Director of Communications, 355-8871
GREENVILLE, S.C. --- Students attending Greenville County public schools will make up three missed school days per the school system’s calendar on Friday, March 7, Monday, March 10, and Friday, June 6, based on State law that requires school districts to schedule three makeup days. Students attending Greenville County Schools have missed six days this school year due to inclement weather.
State law also specifies that missed days beyond the three scheduled days must be made up by scheduling additional makeup days including Saturdays and/or extending school days. The school district’s plan for missed days beyond the three scheduled makeup days is on hold as the Legislature considers a bill that would provide local school boards with authority to forgive up to five school days beyond the three scheduled makeup days. Once final legislation is approved, the administration will consider the impact of and date options for additional makeup days in making a recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
