All Jaron Strom's hard work came down to one moment in a blind audition on NBC's hit show, "The Voice." The Shelby native and Charlotte resident gave it his best, but it almost wasn't enough.
"It was down to the wire," said Strom inside the Charlotte Star Room, a local recording studio just off Park Road.
"Seriously, I was singing my song and was doing my best, but it was getting toward the end and I was like. 'Dude! I'm about to go home!' I thought I was going home and got to the last two or three seconds and that chair just turned around, saw it out of the corner of my eye and just got super pumped. It was amazing," Strom explained.
Now on Team Blake (Shelton), Strom will work with the country music superstar and continue to grow as a performer. Strom doesn't know exactly when he'll fly back to the west coast for the battle rounds but says he's ready.
"It feels exhilarating. Seeing this finally air, and knowing that you're getting all this support from your family, your friends, your hometown. It's amazing."
Strom was introduced to Motown music from his grandfather. He said having him there for the auditions was very special and a moment he won't forget.
