Not everyone gets to hear personalized accolades from their music idols, but that’s exactly what happened to two aspiring singers from Killeen this week on NBC’s “The Voice,” a singing competition show.

Manny Keith, 31, who grew up in Killeen and now lives in Miami, Florida, and Jershika Maple, 24, a Killeen resident, were selected to join Season 21 teams of “The Voice” coached by award-winning recording artists Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson, on an episode that aired Monday.

Manny, or Emmanuel as we knew him from Grace Christian Center, did not mention Killeen at all but that's OK. We hope he does well.
